Hi Sqad and everyone,

Still recuperating and hopefully going in the right direction.....BP averaging around 115-125/72-80....Pulse 74-early 90's....No temp....Stools, thanks to Laxido, looser, dark brown and daily....no blood traces present.

Sleeping well....When awaking and throughout day, still getting bad metallic taste in my mouth and bloated feeling...and not alot of energy....Appetite and taste buds not back to normal o or at all.....Am trying to eat, as I know body needs it.... Small Porridge for breakfast....2 cups of weak tea....Hot chocolate and tomato soup for lunch..... Just had dinner... Domino's lunch time 4 slice Pizza with pineapple, which was nice.....will probably have an Activia yogurt later and some grapes.

Just on Omeprazole 2 capsules in morning and 2 in the evening.

When please, Sqad, can I start expecting a return to my usual self and feeling/tasting hungry and foods, which is surely making me feel weaker than usual. I have lost approx 8 lbs in the 2 weeks following my bleed. And what do you think is causing these symptoms?

It's frustrating, as I'm not one to shirk working and want so much to be able to get back to normal.......plus I'm probably driving Mrs Bear and my daughter crazy!

Many thanks, Sqad and everyone :-)

Steady Yogi, you have had a bleed form your upper bowel, blood products are still in your system and you had a fair dose of antibiotics particularly Clarithromycin which does, in many cases upsets the "system." Also your bloating etc may well be a side effect of omeprazole. A bleeding peptic ulcer is not a "walk in the park" and you will take time to recover. Try...
