The infection is 100% better. The pain I felt when it started was awful and I thought would never end. I cannot believe that an antibiotic (or a string of antibiotic doses) that a DOCTOR prescribed could cause such an adverse reaction. Now that I've read up on this particular medicine - Cipro - I wish that I would have done so before putting it in my body. The side effects seem far worse than the benefits do.
As you know, with my weakened immune system, I tend to get bladder infections anytime a doctor puts me on antibiotics. (for sinus infections, colds, etc.) The medicine to treat the bladder infection then leads to a yeast infection, requiring yet another dose of medicine. I've found that the V-Statin herbs treat both infections much quicker and more painlessly than any prescribed medicine has. This last time on the Cipro, however, (when my doctor said this was the only way to treat my sinus infection, despite my concerns to him) my body must have had it with medicine because it feel as though I had both infections at the same time and severe! Apologies that this is graphic and maybe gross, but I could not even urinate because it hurt so bad. Obviously I was concerned not only with the pain but what more could this be? My OB-GYN ran some tests and found absolutely NO infection or other problem, just odd symptoms. She did not want to put me on any medicine, as in her opinion, nothing was wrong with me.
Here's where I turn to you. I believe I was in for 2-3 sessions a week for a few weeks and follow-up, along with taking the V-Statin for a month and weaning off of it. It took about 2-3 weeks for the immense pain to subside, but now, less than two months later, I'm 100% better and couldn't be happier. I'm also positive I will never take antibiotics again.
Anna, thank you for the support, both physically and mentally. This was an odd health situation and a very uncomfortable one for a woman to discuss. You're understanding, sensitivity, and advice to be consistent with my herbs, acupuncture and better eating helped to keep my motivated. I continued to imagine myself healthy and knew that I would get better. It was only time...and I did. And now, I'm continuing to make efforts in my diet and maintaining my health by paying attention to what I put into my body.
