Avoid if you can but if you are dying a slow death cipro for me no Flagyl

I went off the abx for about a week or so and had several days of zero pain, which I considered to be great progress. Also I have been off anti-TNF for several months. I've also managed to avoid the sort of debilitating pain and fatigue which previously have prompted me to go on 48 hour fasts. Since Dec I have managed to put on 10 lb (168 lb -> 178 lb).

I went back on tetra and flagyl just prior to a week long vacation (cruise) where I knew my diet could be shaky at times. Overall results were decent, but the pain has certainly been coming back in the last few days. I have decided to embark on a third round (11 days) of Cipro.

As I have said, the overall trend has been my friend. I am putting on weight, fatigue is improved, the bad days are not as bad, etc.

Hey Patchy - Overall trend is still in the right direction. I've noticed I can take down any flare much faster now with something like a 36 hr fast rather than 48-60. I can tolerate alcohol better without flaring.

Did another round of Cipro in October and responded well. Following that round, I hit the probiotic foods hard, and also did a 30 day trial of Mutaflor.

I had an extended 2 week period with zero pain following this, which was awesome. Ended up flaring again, and went on a maintenance cycle of Tetracycline, and I have again had an extended period of no pain.

I'm now about 2 years into strict NSD. Dairy sparingly. I can tolerate alcohol much better.

Overall trend is still in my favor, and I am hopeful to achieve true remission in the coming years.

I wanted to update this thread, because like many I assume, we fade away from the forums as we have success. Sometime in late 2019, I achieved full remission. I slowly became more adventurous in my eating. Eventually relapsing in the full blown SAD (standard American diet). While some minor pain creeped in here and there, I never made any adjustments.

Now here in early 2021, I can say that I am at last back in a full flare up. I am certainly anxious about the idea that I have again made myself sick (after 2-3 years of hard work), but what I can do but besides get back onto the wagon?
