Following Iodine Contrast CT Scan Colonscopy + Laxative

Today well since my last post ... I have felt quite great following my colonscopy laxative and iodine used in my contrast ct scan

Most lung disease suffers will get infection from guts belly stomach germs .. as that is where our antibodies are made

This about 500 germs live in our guts ... given how I have been feeling could it be iodine contrast I had with ct scan .. as from my understanding iodine is like antiseptic THAT you use to see on people "purple arms legs" when they cut them self

I might be completely wrong but I think this benefit to be had from use of laxative to clear our bactriea cesspits out given infection rates ... espaly with how good I have been feeling of late

Lung disease and social isolation is the pits SO anything that can help elevate the symptoms isolation defo gets a thumbs up especially as things are set to get worse with cuts and reforms

Here is good piece well worth a read

The Daily Mail piece is interesting. I had the test for helicobacter pylori because of acid reflux. Given that many of us have reflux problems, I am just wondering if more of us COPDers have helicobacter pylori or it is just that more of us are tested for it.

I recently had one of these scans, looking for blood clots. didn't find any thank goodness, but my appetite has been a bit squiffy since. Maybe this is why.
