Well, giving myself permission to be down for a few days was a very good idea. I am a plan for all contingencies kind of person so when this first antibiotic (clarithromycin) took me down for the count I was not anxious.

I did cheat. The other two meds were not kept in stock at my drugstore so I got the clarithromycin first, so I started taking it. I have not started the other two yet. I think this is how it should be prescribed. At least I will know which med causes any really terrible effect. This one was nasty – nauseating, terrible stomach cramps, ridiculous dry mouth as well as the taste of death in my mouth. But now, taken my fifth in the sequence of at least 770 and it has mellowed out. I am however left with some really obnoxious gastrointestinal problems! Hopefully that will mellow out or I will never leave the house.

I have the Ballet tonight so I will start taking another med tomorrow.

I am already finally able to breathe using my diaphragm.

I really hope I can do these meds! Well, I may ask him to switch one. The one that frequently causes vision loss is making me anxious. I do not want to be worrying about that for a year.

Speaking of leaving the house today NEW PHONE DAY!!! I want the Droid Turbo 2. I think. My husband really wants me to get an iPhone, and maybe I will. Maybe not.

  1. I’m sorry you have to continue to go through this. Hopeful that these meds kick the infection in the pants! How often will they check to see what’s working? take care!

    1. Thanks.
      I don’t really know. I know the first repeat bronchascopy is usually at three months.
      Since I also have scans every three months for the cancer I think we will be able to kill two birds with one stone!

Don’t leave without saying something!
