WARNING WARNING WARNING: GRAPIC My latest adventure in DoctorLand is this: Dr told me to take 24,000 mgs Ibuprofen daily as what he called an "anti-inflammatory dose" of Ibuprofen. As always with any medical advice I back-checked what he said with my friend who has had her nurse's [what?? license? certification?] on both coasts of this country for DECADES and she exploded. "NO! At the most, take 16,000 mgs. Also, be careful to eat good-size meals." (no problem there, I eat at least 6 times a day because of rotten hypoglycemia). And drink a LOT of water." In fairness, I must say dr told me to be sure to drink a full glass of water with each handful of Ibuprofen and be sure to eat, but he seems to have forgotten that my file notes include hypoglycemia info. Okay. Now, after a week of 16,000 mgs per day...here comes the graphic part in case anybody wants to leave NOW... I'm having "explosive" bm's many times a day/night and I'm now worrying that what's left behind on the toilet paper looks like it might be blood. On the upside, I have become an expert as to the location of every clean public restroom within miles of my home, lol sort of. No pun intended much oh sure: "Bottom" line...be careful about accepting dr's orders. Lea.
