I just got back from InstaCare urgent care, where I spent over 6 hours today. I explained my signs and symptoms, and was told that there is no way Olestra could have caused what I have. The most likely diagnosis is C. Difficile, but they’ll have to send out a culture to know for certain. They infused three liters of lactated ringers, and each liter took over an hour to infuse.
The upside is the weight I’ve lost this week, as well as the orders to have lots of fluids and yummy popcicles. Hopefully once I gain my energy back, I’ll be ready to hit the exercise and weight loss hard.
