Four months ago I was misdiagnosed with a prostate infection after experiencing pelvic pain and frequent urination issues. The doctor
prescribed Cipro over a period of 2 months. In all, I took Cipro for
34 days (500 mg per day).
During the past 4 months, I've experienced terrible abdominal pain, including pressure in my pelvic area, cramping, flat stools, thin stools and contipation. It got so bad that I couldn't sleep for months. My colon hurt so much it felt like it was raw. I've been off Cipro for 2 months.
I ended up getting a colonoscopy because I thought there was an obstruction. I also had a CT abdominal scan and both showed nothing. The GI guy says it's IBS. I've never had IBS in my life and I'm 42 years old.
At this point I have improved since I've taken probiotics, but I'm relying on Bentyl (muscle relaxer) and I feel like my colon is still not working properly. I feel abdominal pain/pressure in the pelvic area and am also constipated. I know my stools would be flat if I wasn't taking Metamucil. I supect that the Cipro really messed me up.
Anyone out there have any possible solutions you can share. I just want to be back to normal. Please help.
