Toxicity from Cipro treatment for Pouchitis
(Calgary, Alberta, Canada)
I had my colon removed due to Ulcerative Colitis. I eventually required surgery for something called a J-Pouch. Within this intestinal pouch I was having inflammation and ulceration. I was prescribed Cipro and Flagyl in combination for about 5 years.
I finally had to go for a permanent ostomy so I last took that Cipro in 2010. While I was on it, I had pain in my hip all the time. My legs went numb for several months. I didn't know these problems were related to the medication. Now 3 years later I have Fibromyalgia and neuropathy. I am always tired and in pain. I believe this is due to damage to the mitochondria in my cells.
I am also on Zoloft for "depression" and now I read that is linked to mitochondrial damage, as is all the anaesthetics and surgery itself. I am praying for a cure or to feel a bit better. I can't work anymore and am having poor memory and depersonalization. It's so disheartening. I hope Jesus returns soon so I can be healed completely.
