Sickness & Recovery
I've been away from fitday for the past couple of weeks because I've been ill. Due to the illness (a combination of adjusting to Metformin & and ear/sinus infection), I have not been able to keep much down and so have rapidly lost weight. I understand that this is unhealthy and that the weight will come back as soon as I am able to eat normally again; however, I would love some tips on how to cope with nausea as well as how to ensure that I still get vitamins and minerals without overloading my (apparently) sensitive stomache.
On a really good day I can drink milk and broth, eat around 2 oz of meat, a piece of fruit, and a fist sized serving of broccoli.
On a bad day, like today, I can only keep down a couple oz of Pedialyte and a saltine with the help of Nauzene tablets.
Any suggestions will not fall on deaf ears! I've reached the point of desperation- I'd like to be able to eat again!
You can only sit on your rump and feel sorry for yourself for so long before your butt goes numb.
Better to jog away your worries than to add a sore ass to the list.
