Ive been very ill for the last three weeks.
« on: October 02, 2020, 03:48:13 AM »
Hyper Cellulitis in my left leg, I spent some time in the hospital but they sent me home with home nurseing.
I Tested negative for covid, thank the Lord but I still feel like crap. Weak and sometimes in pain, very powerful
Antibiotics which have thier own side effects. Trust me you don't ever want to experience this, its very slow to
heal and can effect your entire body.

Sorry to hear about all that.
Most everybody here is getting
to that age where things get
to us pretty bad instead of being
able to pop tylenol and shrug
it off like we could 25 years ago.
They took a goodly amount of
blood from me a couple of weeks
ago and i liked to have had to go to
the hospital. I think next blood
draw I'll find someone to chauffeur
me or take a cab

Some of those antibiotics are worse
than the illness.
I have much sympathy for those that
are frequent fliers at the pharmacy.

It's been a long ride for sure I've never had anything like this before. Usually I would just try to cowboy through it,but not this one. All this from a dirty roofing nail the roofers left behind and it was under our car. It poked me pretty deep when I was crawling under the car changing the oil. I had a Tetanus shot back in January so that wasn't it, a puncher wound is the worst to have. Blew it off so that sure wasn't the right thing to do.

I should probably get a tetanus shot myself
after handling all the old rusty fence wire

Ain't that the truth, I'm taking some of the most powerful there is. $ 100.00 a bottle, they make me feel dizzy and mess up my gutty works. I was on an IV drip for two days in the hospital, I couldn't hold down any food.
I'm on home health care, the Nurse shows up every two days.

Be very careful.
A woman who rented a station from my Sig. other, had minor wound that hurt , ignored it.
It became Septic and she died within a year.

That's what Ive heard it can do. Sometimes even quicker than that. Even amputation if it's in an extremity.
As we grow older we are more susceptible to things like this. Hemolytic Streptococcus ( strep) is a very
powerful bacteria.

Argent....

You must be run down so to speak. Antibiotics are rough on mitochondria and your healthy flora. This is the home remedies forum and I recommend seeing a good naturopath specialist. If you can't I personally recommend starting with the highest grade multivitamin,  CoQ10, probiotics, fish oil, vit D, powder vit C with minerals, etc. You can source these supplements at Swanson supplements or Natural Healthy Solutions.  Meanwhile lots of leafy green and colorful veggies. Best supplement is sleep....try melatonin if it helps.

Yep, sure enough......antibiotics and carisoprodol will be constipating and make you cranky. Fiber, fiber, fiber and water.

One more day left on this heavy antibiotic.  The wound has healed up nicely,finally after a month of this nightmare. I'm working on getting my gutty works up to snuff again. I'm still sore and kinda weak but that will pass in time I'm told. The adhesive in those medical bandages and tapes have been very hard on the skin.
