I lost my whole summer due to very bad esophageal ulcer. When I say ulcer I know most of the people connect it with pain, but this ulcer makes me sick like as when I have a flu, it makes me fatigued, so fatigue is the bigger issue I have with it. After 2-3 months of being very sick, I've become so weak that I developed a bacterial infection - you know, one of these which cause sore throat, coughing and blocked nose. After being sick for 20 days I went to my GP. I haven't visited him for 2 years. I explained that I have esophageal ulcer so I don't want to take Bioparox (this is an antibiotic spray for throat and nose), and, being afraid that it can irritate the ulcer, and that I want to take antibiotic in the form of pills - I'm aware of the side effects of broad-spectrum antibiotics, but I don't have another choise. But he didn't agree and prescribed me Bioparox and Mucoplant (glucose syrup with plantain, for the cough), saying that Bioparox wouldn't irritate my ulcer. Well it appears that he was right about the Bioparox, but that made me forget to ask about the Mucoplant which is glucose syrup. Sugar is bad for ulcer. After taking only 2 spoons of Mucoplant, I'm very sick again. My ulcer hurts and I'm weak. I'm afraid that I may catch the bacterial infection again. And I'm desperate because I can't heal the ulcer for 2 years already. Now I'm so angry that I want to go to him and tell hime that he caused me another ... ummm ... maybe 2 weeks of suffering, but I'm so sick that I'm not sure I'll go.
1) If suffering from esophageal ulcer, don't eat/drink ANY concentrated sweets, even if they are remedies.
2)Don't believe doctors
Another reason not to believe docs
