Oh, dear Lee, get well soon! But I hope you and the doctors now
overcame the antibiotic problem and now you are going to recover.
Hugs - Maria
I do hope you get better really soon Lee and that you feel 100% as fast as possible. Love Chris
Update time....my feet are doing much better. All three surgical sites are healing nicely and everyday I feel less and less pain. I still can't do very much or they throb but at least it is bearable now.
Thank you for your prayers
Wow, you have been through the wringer with this. Prayers your recovery is quick and complete.
I'm so glad for you that you are having improvement. Maybe the worst is over and you are on the road to total recovery.
My doctor forgot to send the pharmacy my new antibiotics and my pain med yesterday. I've called him three times today because they keep saying they sent it but it's not at the pharmacy. 😢
Oh, Lee, I feel for you........I have the same reaction to most antibiotics.....I have to be so careful not to get an infection, due to the fact that I can't take most of the antibiotics.......hope you are fit as can be soon!
Bless you. I know the reaction you have had. When it happened to me, I too had to call my husband home to take care of me. I do hope that you are better.
Hello again! Everything just hurts to move. Going to see the doctor - my doctor in a couple of hours. On Monday, I saw his son who works in the same office. He was a jerk to me. He actually stepped out to research the antibiotic and came back in to say it was safe. I'm definitely going to do what several of you have suggested and check with the pharmacies before hand from now on.
I'm lucky that my husband was able to leave work immediately to come care for me and has worked from home today.
Hope all is well with you and your families,
Oh Lee, I do sympathize with you. It's definitely no fun being in pain, laid up and sick as a dog/Lillian
Always ask the pharmacists.Dr's and nurses mean well but just have no idea. They have too many patients. The last time I was in the hospital I had 3 bracelets with allergies on them. Antibiotics and pain meds give me all kinds of problems. Hope your feeling better.
Hope you are better, getting ill isn't for the faint of hearts.
Over the years , I have meds that I could not tolerate, but never an allergic reaction. So sorry. Sometimes I think to ask the pharmacist on RX questions rather than the Doctor. Kay
Bless your heart. This seems so unfair. Don't just tell the doctor, ask the pharmacist, too, before filling the prescription. My dear ear doctor who "raised me" and my bad ears ordered an antibiotic that was penicillin-based for his grandson who was allergic to penicillin and the doctor/grandfather himself was allergic to it, too. The mother asked the pharmacist if it had any relationship to penicillin and requested grandpa to order something else! It's really hard for doctors to keep track of it all, but the pharmacists work every day with these drugs.
Wow. Doctor's have so much going on in their heads. I know I wouldn't want the responsibility.
I am so sorry. How frustrating and mostly painful this must be. I pray that they find the right medicines to help you get over that infection.
I feel so bad for you...Prayers are with you Hope they can find some antibiotic you can tolerate better.
