How long before strength comes back ?

Posted , 6 users are following.

It’s been 6 weeks since I was hospitalized with an attack. Suffered through antibiotics for a month with smoldering infection.   Still no energy  to do much. Very tired at night.   Would be helpful to know if others had this experience.

    Yes, I was out of it for 2 months, drink lotsa water, cranberry juice, beef bone broth, take probiotics, also Tumeric  is good , you can find recipes on line for drinks. Also apple cider vinegar with lemons . Are you on soft diet now? What do you eat? This disease takes time and patients to heal.  This is a good forum for advice and suggestions. Best wishes 🙏🤗

      For breakfast I have a banana, bowl of Raisin Bran crunch n I add all bran   I don’t drink the milk   OJ.   Lunch is turkey sandwich   Tuna fish tastes good   Dinner salmon.  Fish or chicken. Still no appetite for red meat or wine.  I miss Caprese salad. I know there r differing views on seeds but I’m not taking a chance right now. This has been horrible. Snacks r granola bars. I take Metamucil n probiotics but need to add more fiber

      I’m told to do a cocktail / Psyllium mucilloid(Metamucil)with Miller’s wheat bran. Daily for fiber. Low FodMat diet to start. What probiotics do you take? I only took while I was on antibiotics but need to take them daily, to many to choose from. Hope your feeling better soon. 🌺🌸

    A month later from my third flair ups, I am on soft diet. Ensure30 G protein, cream of wheat, baked fish, mush potatoes, lots of water, peppermint chamomile ginger tea every day, baked apples, 60% dark chocolate, chocolate pudding, 2 probiotics, baked sweet potatoes, boiled chicken carrots and selery but blended, banana and plain yougurt, kefir, white rice, egg pastwith cherry feta cheese or Parmesan cheese. I am afraid and I would not touch fresh veggies and fresh fruit. I have surgery, laparoscopic/ robotic in 4 weeks. I am scared.
