Four Weeks Post-Bordeaux Ablation

Four Weeks Post-Bordeaux Ablation

I felt pretty good after leaving the hospital and looked forward to telling you the considerable progress I had made in the next four weeks. Sadly that is not the case as I'm feeling considerably worse. 

A I mentioned in another post constipation leading to impaction started from the day of the operation; presumably from the morphine. As a result of this (presumably) I gradually felt worse. It lasted two weeks until Laxido solved the problem; only to be followed by extreme diarrhea. This was worse as it meant I wasn't getting the nutrients I should have from my food and probably likewise from supplements and medication. 

Fortunately a psyllium supplement stopped this in 2/3 days though it caused a touch of the opposite problem again for a few days. Normal movements returned yesterday. 

At present I can do very little, including walking, without a buildup of pressure and discomfort in the chest. 

Of course side effects of Pradaxa, Flecainide and Lansoprazole could also be playing a part. 

Hopefully I'll be able to come back in another four weeks with a more positive report.

Tough to hear...at least you did not mention your heart is still going bonkers...well hopefully you get off flec. and your heart is still in NSR in 2 more months drug free.
I would suggest to take magnesium for your bowel problem....its the natural way....and your body will thank you...natural calm is a good 1...a couple of TS of that and in an hour or 2 you will be just fine...adjust as needed.
GL keep us posted.
