Anyone have any ideas on what I can do to get over the stomach flu?
I got it last week, was in bed Saturday and Sunday, vomiting and diarrhea. Felt a little better for the rest of the week, just had no appetite and if I did force myself to eat it would trigger the diarrhea again. Got home from work last night and it started all over again, worse then it ever was.
I'm trying to keep hydrated so I don't have to go to the hospital, so I'm drinking G2. Problem is I take one sip and instantly it seems to hit my stomach and triggers diarrhea and vomiting. I am dehydrated, lips and mouth dry, skin papery and doesn't spring back like it should, but I live in a small town and going to the hospital would be hours while they call a dr in, etc. Honestly I feel to sick to go to the hospital :lol
I'm trying to keep down gravol (Dramamine) and immodium with limited success, but it's not stopping the fluid loss. I feel like I've been beaten with a stick, every muscle hurts and I'm getting Charlie horses in my legs. This just seems so much more intense and long lasting then prior to the surgery? It's almost like I can feel the outline of my stomach in there and it feels like it's burning.
I'm 6.5 months out, and doing well with the exception of this. Anyone have any advice on how to keep hydrated and get past this thing?
Thanks for letting me whine.
