Hi everyone. My life is busy with school (finishing my MA, trying to graduate in three weeks!) and my computer died, so I have not been very active on the public boards. In addition with our friends not doing so well (hang in there Mike!) I have not wanted to clutter this space with my less critical recovery woes.
Thrush, as it turns out, has been the real problem. Mouth sores and mucus and thrush have me thinking this will never end. I went to the Dr last Thursday and he prescribed another round of diflucan. I also have been having acid refux and still cannot sleep through the night. I just had a woe is me session with Claire and she's great of course, but it's now 5 and a half weeks post treatment and I'm still suffering. I swallow only a bit of water a day to keep the reflex, everything else is through the tube.
I rinse religiously with salt/baking soda and keep the teeth clean but what else can I do to help the flora and fauna stay away?
Thanks to everyone. My thoughts are always with you all.
