Improvement has continued which is great. The fatigue and tiredness seem to be a little less, but if I have a burst of activity I will normally have to have a rest in order to recuperate. Another good thing is the UTI I had has cleared up but might have left a nasty side effect. The antibiotics that they gave me for the UTI also clean out the good bacteria in your intestines which allow the bad bacteria to proliferate.
As a result I have been having lots of diarrhoea. I have raised this with the good people in Chicago and also my doctors here and they agree that I should have a test for clostridium difficile (C-diff) the bacteria that normally grows in the absence of good bacteria. I should get the results on Monday. The irony is that in order to treat c-diff which was caused by antibiotics, the treatment is, yes, you guessed it, more antibiotics. But I hope it is diagnosed quickly as I am getting tired of the diarrhoea all the time.
The other question I have been asking myself a lot is has the procedure worked? Well, it is a difficult question to answer so I will make it the subject of my next post. Until then, stay well:)
