The medic alert wristlet at the Motor Speedway says, "I am a Driver. Take me to Methodist."

Roberta's blog says the doctor gave her Cipro. I hope it helps. Back pain is never good, regardless of the cause.

Jay G said...

Cipro? Isn't that for anthrax???

Doc said...

Cipro is an antibiotic that is used for treating anthrax. It is also used to treat other conditions. I was recently treated with a drug similar to cipro for a stubborn upper respiratory condition. Anyway I hope everything works our ok.

Cipro is a "Walmart $4" antibiotic now. It would be used as a first try for many UTI's, or for a fragmenting stone that caused "sand" inflammation in the bladder or ureter. Typical drug therapy for simple stone is a muscle relaxant to allow the stone to pass (a little urology humor: the involuntary clenching of internal muscles caused by pain and invasion is called "insult."). The relaxant would be accompanied by a generic pain-duller and some neat South American tree-bark extract to keep you from getting real sick on the fake opiate.

Cipro would not be indicated for a suspected tumor, or for muscle spasms. Lower-tract anthrax is, um, rare, but that's our Bobbi!

"I aten't ded," as Granny Weatherwax says.

What is? We dunno. Doc dunno. Pain much milder, localized to right side, mid-lower back. Takin' Cipro.

I was whacked with a stone in the kidney last year, and it became pretty clear to me that kidneys R Not Designed 4 That.

I did find out that lemonade is your friend (the citrate or something helps keep the stuff dissolved in there). 1 cup grocery-store lemon juice, 3/4 - 1 cup splenda, in a 2-liter bottle filled with water makes pretty good lemonade without all the carbs. Magnesium-citrate+B6 supplement also helps.

Best wishes to Roberta. I'd say "we feel her pain," except we'd rather not...
