Anyone?

Anyone know anything about the Campylobacter infection in the bowel? i have it and ive googled it a bit, but would like to know if anyone else has ever suffered with this, and how to make it better. Thanks

Re: Anyone?

im taking 8 erythromycin a day for a week. Ive started them 24 hours ago, ive had 2 bouts of bad diarroerah this morning, and ive just taken my first antibiotics of the day now and i feel awful.

I suppose they havent started on killing the bug yet. How long does it take for antibiotics to kick into killing a bacteria please?

ive had this 2 weeks now and Doc decided yesterday i need antibiotics, so i feel like ive been ill for such a long time.

Re: Anyone?

worry.....

It takes 3-4 days for them to "kick in" and kill those bugs! Important....when you start feeling better, do not stop taking them! As lousy as they make you feel, you must complete the full week! I was on 8 tabs a day for 2 weeks (different antibiotics...one of them Flagyl (awful)....but hung in there!

You should start feeling better real soon.....keep us posted,
Linda

Worry,

Have you ever taken erythromycin before? I ask, because the one and only time I took it, I got horrible diarreah.

Re: Anyone?

ok update....

I took 8 antibiotics for 48 hours and woke up the second morning and was vomitting like ive never vomitted before. I wasnt sure it was this bug, or the antibiotics. I had the bug for 12 days before and no vomitting so i was sure it was the pills. What i vomitted was just yellow bile, as i had an empty stomach, the pain of vomitting nothing is awful, today i have like pulled muscles in my upper stomach area from all the retching.

I was taken to hospital where they put me on a drip as i was dehydrated, they gave me a shot to stop me vomitting and did bloods. Bloods came back fine, but they pulled me straight off the antibiotics and told me the Doc shouldnt have put me on them in the 1st place (fool)

i was sent home with anti sickness meds which has worked, today i feel a little bit better, no vomit and no diarroreah as of yet. I think i could be turning the corner of what has been the worst 14 days of my life almost. This bug (campylobacter) has been a viscious nasty germ, that has taken forever to shift, and im not out of the woods yet

Let's hope you're FINALLY turning the corner here. I'm sure you must have been very dehydrated......

Good luck,
