I am beginning to notice some improvement in my elimination difficulties, so it looks like the Triavil is calming down the erratic muscle spasms in my digestive tract. I’m only on half the dose I should be on, but I’m still being obviously affected by the side effects, so I will continue to go very slowly.
Tomorrow is our Date Day, and we’re going to visit our younger daughter and her family this weekend, so it’s not a good time to try to add the next half of a pill. It can wait until next week, and I will just be careful to follow the Bowel Retraining regimen that my Gastro has me on. Everything is convenient that he has me doing except for the Milk of Magnesia every 3 days as needed. Well, there are times when I need it, but I can’t be home the next day to deal with the consequences!! LOL!!! But other than that, I have been very careful to follow all of his directions.
I am beginning to feel better generally, too. My ulcers must be healing, as I don’t feel that dull pressure pain like I was feeling. I will stay on the restricted diet and continue to eat something with every pill dose until I am sure the ulcerated stomach condition has gone. I don’t have the jaunty step back yet that I had right after I went on the Primidone, but I certainly am moving better than I was for awhile there when the ulcers and antibiotics had me knocked for a loop.
I’m staying busy all day finding lovies for people and selling a few, too. I’ve even felt good enough to start a little housework. I have the greatest hubby in the world, who does everything he can to help me, which means he does the majority of the work around here. So when I feel good enough I do try to help, plus there are a few things he just doesn’t “see” that don’t get done unless I do it, if you know what I mean. ROTFL!!!
