Slight miscalculation…

I mentioned recently that I was due to come off of my antibiotics soon, and that I was looking forward to celebrating normality with a beer. Yesterday was supposed to be my last tablet, and I was rather looking forward to getting off them. However, while chatting to my nan, she pointed out that it had only been 2 months since my op, and that I had been told I would need 3 months worth of the antibiotics. I had been given a few boxes of them when I was discharged from hospital, and had assumed that that was the entire course that I needed. When I got down to the last box I started counting down the days based on what I had left without doing the maths and realising how long I had been on them.

I called the GP and explained the situation to him and asking for guidance. He checked my notes and said that I needed to go another month to fit with the instructions with the surgeon. So here I am with another month’s worth to get through – just when I thought I was there! Oh well. Todays lesson: make sure the numbers add up!

I want to share my experiences to raise awareness of Crohn's, as well as helping out people who have been diagnosed. If you have any questions then feel free to message or comment and I will answer! Have a great day people. KBO
