“All I know is my steak tastes better when I take my steak tastes better pill…”
I saw the local gastroenterologist today. He prescribed Carafate liquid 3 times a day to coat my esophagus and stomach and told me to eat 5 small low-fat meals per day. The tricky thing about Carafate is scheduling it around meals and other medications. I need to take my other meds an hour or two before the Carafate so it doesn’t interfere with their absorption. I have to take the Carafate either an hour before or two hours after eating. Some of my other meds need to be taken with food. It took me about an hour but I think I’ve worked out a schedule that honors all the requirements! I’ll have to keep the schedule on hand all the time because there’s no way I’ll commit it to memory with my lingering chemo brain.
The doctor wants to see me again in two weeks. If there’s been no improvement, he wants to do another endoscopy to see if anything has changed since the one I had at Hopkins on January 11.
