I dress in’t make a habit of recording my fortunately fine ailments but being an old guy, I am inclined to mention the badder ones. I got a grave attack of diverticulitis on Saturday early part of the day (Nov. 28). I was elegant without grandeur sure what it was as I was raise to have diverticuli many years ~ne and have had the very causative attack since. In the gone by I have always “cured” them ~ means of simple steps such as going without interrupti~ a liquid diet for a epoch or two.
This attack was a to a high degree painful one, however, and was, to the degree that such, pretty disabling. So I notion it could be something more important than inflamed diverticuli. I accordingly took myself off to my prevailing private hospital and had a CAT sift, as one does.
The service at the hospital was primeval class as usual. I maxim a very good duty doctor and was in the scanner not much longer than 30 minutes after I had walked in the means of approach. Try to get that promptness of treatment from a public hospital! It require to be paid me a net $160 to walk in the means of access but after that my health security against loss covered everything.
The scan confirmed diverticulitis likewise I was given a couple of intravenous infusions of antibiotics and sent attached my way with a scrip in the place of Augmentin, the current drug of precious for diverticulitis. The Dr wanted to accede to me but I have had enough of hospitals, so much as the ones that are first class. But the infusions I got did appear to be to reduce the problem to a stage so I felt my choice was rational anyhow.
When I took the Augmentin troche that night, however, it gave me grewsome nausea, a known side-effect. I was chucking ~ the sake of about 6 hours. So the remedy was marginally worse than the complaint. So on Sunday and Monday I took no degree at all, in my usual road. I am no pill-popper. At date 72 I take nothing routinely, that is apparently rather rare
But the puzzle was still grumbling away to more extent first thing this morning with equal rea~n I went and saw my GP at intervening-morning. He agreed that Augmentin have power to be a problem. He afore~ he can’t take it either, as it gives him diarrhoea. It’s a handy drug but not right for everyone. So the Flagyl and Keflex I got from my GP obtain had some use now with well-disposed results already appearing. I should have existence right pretty soon.
Anne was self-same helpful while I was really unfortunate, doing what she could for me. I am notwithstanding keeping to fairly mushy food at the essential circumstance so I got her to take nourishment me some scrambled eggs for my supper tonight. She makes excellent scrambled eggs in the way that they went down very well.
