Well, it has been 31 days since I was floxed. It seems lately that no matter what I do: sit, lie down, walk, garden or dance, the results are the same. It hurts like hell the entire time, but I seem to be making small strides toward less pain each day, with each activity.
In the beginning on the days that I felt "better" I would try and regain some portion of my daily routine. That only led to a relapse and I spent the next day flat on my back recovering. At about 3 weeks out it seemed as though even if I slowly increased my activity, the next day I was remaining status quo or a bit improved. The pain was still there, but I was better able to move and walk. I can even walk up the 3 stairs in my house like a normal person does, instead of one at a time. I can bend my knees without them feeling as though they are going to explode and I can bend over without shooting pains down the back of my legs.
So last night I decided to put my theory to the test and took my first trial run on the dance floor. I taped my feet, put braces on my ankles and knees for protection from tendon rupture and threw caution to the wind! I felt as though I was dancing in muddy fire as my feet burned tremendously and the muscles in my legs felt very weak and fatigued, but I am tickled to death that the only repercussions that I suffered were that this morning it took me an extra hour to get moving. Since dancing is a my passion and a huge part of my life, the pain was worth it! I hope that day by day the pain will lessen and the strength will return. I am still in utter disbelief that an antibiotic could reek such havoc on your body is so short of time.
I addition to everything that I have been taking, mentioned here: http://www.cipropoisoning.com/2010/04/helpful-suggestions-post-cipro-poisonng.html
I have also added 2 scoops of Whey Isolates to help rebuild the damaged muscles.
Whether or not these things have helped to heal my body, I began improving 2 days after implementing them, and I am so desperate to regain my life that I fully intend to continue what I have been doing and pray for full recovery! I wish you all the same!
