Does anyone know a reason why one would not eat pork or chicken while on basic, normal antibiotics? If anyone can explain this to me I would appreciate it.
I’ve been busy, so I’ve not posted much. I appreciate all the comments and emails in hopes of my recovery. I am feeling mostly better right now, but I am being dreadfully cautious about my energy, about sleep, about taxing myself. I am taking relaxation quite seriously these days.
Yesterday I visited the doctor and I wanted to highlight the fact that it was an excellent experience. The doc, despite his very limited English and my very limited Korean, worked hard to make sure that (a) I understood what my condition does entail; (b) that I understand what my condition doesn’t entail; and finally, (c) to make sure I had enough antibiotics to definitely take a full course. I have two weeks’ worth of prescription now, and I am happy about that.
I’m a little confused in that the pharmacist told me I’m not allowed to eat pork or chicken while on these drugs. He neglected to mention milk, though he did say yes, milk and alcohol are banned as well. Milk and alcohol I’ve heard of before, but I’ve never heard of someone not being allowed pork or chicken while on a given kind of antibiotic. I asked Lime to check it out, as she too has never heard of such a thing. (And googling turns up nothing too.)
Anyway, I’m doing okay, just trying to control how much energy I expend doing what, and trying to manage my time better. This Friday afternoon I am to have my left bottom wisdom tooth removed, though, and I am buckling down for a very hard weekend and a painful few weeks. We’ll see how it goes.
