Yeast Infection Help!



Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies! I'm 2 months post op and have the yeast infection from hell. I went to a Little Clinic close to me (not my PCP or surgeon) and they gave me 2 doses of prescription Fluconazole PLUS I did a round of Monistat ... Almost a week later and it's still here! I'll call my PCP tomorrow but I thought I'd check here to see if this has happened to anyone else? I thought maybe my body wasn't absorbing the medication like it normally would?

Following this as I’ve been struggling with this issue as well. Was sleeved 2/6, and had a horrible thrush infection 3 days post-op that we’ve used oral lozenges and diflucan for and it’s come back twice..... second time it came back down below also so I’m taking a couple more diflucan AND using monistat.
The worst part is I eat some kind of yogurt almost every day

Sounds as though you are doing all the right steps, maybe you finally will have all the steps converge to. the right effect.

Hi there! I had my surgery a few years ago, and I've noticed when I over indulge in sugars and carbs - I get yeast infections. It has a lot to do with the way your body processes blood sugars now. Make sure that if this is what's maybe happening you just follow up your bad choices with a lot of Water to get it flushed from your body asap!

@sheribear68 I think your case is just a weakened immune system so soon after surgery. You will be healthier the faster you recover. Hang in there!!

Lol, the yeast infection hit 3 days after surgery when I had yet to eat anything so I’m thinking it’s not sugar. 😂😂😂

Are you positive it's a yeast infection and not BV, Bacterial Vaginosis?

I would think you're correct Silly Kitty, fits the scenario better!

Highly encourage to stop washing your vagina with soap, just plain Water. Drink tons of water and cut out all products with yeast. I had a horrible yeast infection last summer and making these changes haven't had one. I just had the surgery a few days ago and I noticed a change in my discharge. Will change my underwear a few times during the day, wash with Apple cider vinegar once or twice a week, the rest with plain warm water. And TMI when I poop I wash just my butt with soap and my vagina with water if that makes sense. Just be gentle with your vagina, she can heal.

One of my diabetes meds has the side effect of causing vaginal yeast infections... yippee! My doc put me on a once-a-month med to prevent the infections (can't recall the name just now). Haven't had to deal with the yeast beast in over a year, thankfully.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much

        Yogurt. Matcha yogurt. ;) LOL. I could have thinned down yogurt and kefir on my full liquids phase. Maybe email your RD and ask if that's also on your full liquids. I use Peach and Cream, and Bananas and Cream in my yogurt to thin it into a soup right now. :)

      2. GreenTealael

        I put a call in this morning they will get back to me shortly.

      3. FluffyChix

        Yay!! I bet they will say yes!

      4. GreenTealael

        I bet i will fight them if they say no 😂

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.
