Abdominal Surgery, Ovary Removed, Now Chronic Bladder Infections

Posted by Anonymous on 05/09/2008

Ted...you helped me so much with recuperating from my hysterectomy surgery over a year ago! Thank you. I underwent more abdominal surgery in March and had my right ovary removed due to a fast growing cyst which was causing a lot of pain. My doctor also told me that she had found a few adhesions, I suppose from my previous surgery, which she cleaned up.

My question...I feel terrible still!! Dr. said she is not surprised by this at all...it has only been two months. I am having pain in my right side radiating to my back flank area. Constipation, and serious pressure on the bladder. Over the past year I have had over 8 urinary tract infections, and have had two since my surgery in March! I am not sleeping well, and just muddle through my day so I can get home to rest. I have made an observation...when I eat red meat I feel really really bad....I can feel the pressure in my intestine as it works its way through, and have a lot of lower back pain until I can relieve it with a bm. I have started the ACV twice a day, taking a stool softener daily, and also taking Vitalzyme, which is supposed to dissolve scar tissue. I am taking fifteen a day. Any advice you could give me would be so much appreciated!!! I do have an appointment to see a urologist in a couple weeks for the bladder infection problems I am having. I look forward to hearing from you!

Happy to hear about your recuperating surgery. And sorry about late response!

The adhesions at least in my own observations comes when the body tries to prevent an infection from spreading by building up "adhesions" due to lack of sanitary practices in some surgical rooms.

Therefore there are three major supplements that can lower some of these problematic adhesions form forming more, especially magnesium gluconate, that is required in much larger amounts, such as 500 mg of mganesium gluconate taken 3 or 4 times a day. Zinc gluconate 50 mg, usually taken once a day, and only 5 days out of a week, but should generally not be taken beyond a two month periods, as it may cause lost of appetite and drier skin.

Baking soda is the preferred remedy to discourage pathogen from spreading and reduced adhesions, usually the dose is 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium bicarbonate in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. The excess buildup on adhesion is the excessive buildup in pathogens and biofilms that the body creates fibrous material to prevent such a spread. Magnesium and alkalization is the basic, but zinc is needed still. Further growth may be prevented with chromium picolinate as it lowers blood sugar to normal levels starving the bacteria of the needed sugar.
