Tropical Sprue

I have finally received a diagnosis of Tropical Sprue, I've had it since December 2009.
It was a parting gift from Jakarta lol.
I have just finished my first of six bottles of antibiotics, some lovely heavy duty Tetracyclines and are already feeling much improved.
An unfortunate condition of these mediations is sobriety......yes 3 whole months of sobriety is necessary.

Uni is back on as of this week, I have tacked on an extra unit to a full-time load...I'm going to be VERY busy for the next few 15 weeks!

Oh God. Sounds similarly disgusting to what hubby and I had to go through during and post-Peru. Hope it goes away without recurrences. xo

Three months of treatment and still going. "much improved" That's good news at least. Hope it continues.

The word verification is "bugge" for this comment :-)

Yuck! Bugs from Jakarta tend to be 'strong' partially because of all the antiboitics that Indonesians tend to use at the first sign of a cold!
