Just returned form the GI visit. He thinks i have Clostridium difficile toxin A and/or B and ordered another stool sample. In the meantime he wants me to start on a probiotic and an antibiotic. I hope this is right. I need to check the antibiotic on Hales website because the doc said I can't breastfeed while taking it. Not true, I am sure. thanks again everyone for all your help.
sounds like allergies to me, too - my nephew has them and the throaght clearing at night is how my sister knows they are acting up

shannie sue - I will say, my anxiety about everythng (logistics, pain, fasting, etc...) was waaay worse than the actual surgery. Pm me if you want to talk - it will be okay
Just wamnted to chime in here (i did over in sn's) but once my daughter could take food by mouth, she was able to breastfeed. I think that might be what the op is getting at? I didn't have to use bottles, if that is what you are asking. But yes, they are not able to eat for a while - and it is a slow start because they are sleepy form all the medication - but I did nurse my daughter 24 hours post op (the second operation) and held her carefully. She didn't eat much the...
I like Bumblebars. http://www.bumblebar.com/ 6g of protien - not sure how much you're looking for.

I just emailed ehr surgical nurse (who I have since become friends with) and plan to call her cardiologist in the am. I am really upset about this. My daughter also has congenital hypothyroid, and I have two autoimmue diseases, so this stuff is important to me. She is partially vaxed right now. And her ped thinks I am crazy ugh ugh ugh. sorry to...
