    Intestinal bug passion

    I am on day 7 of a nasty virus that's wreaking havoc on my intestines. Thought a couple of times during the week that I was starting to feel better and suffered the consequences

    It's no fun sticking to bananas, rice/pasta, applesauce and toast (doc says mashed potatoes are okay too). I'm even avoiding coffee which is a major sacrifice. I've managed to stay reasonably hydrated with mostly water plus ~20oz bottle of Gatorade a day. Note: too much Gatorade increases "velocity" shall we say, so don' t go chugging the big bottles people.

    This is only the 2nd time that I've had any stomach/intestinal bug everrrr and not pedaling all week is making me grouchy. Doc says it is unlikely that I got it from mud/stream splashed water bottle but I'm still thinking of switching to a small Camelback (swag win at some race last year) for a while at least.

    I question the dietary advice you've been given... all those sugars/starches are probably feeding those buggies well, keepin' em fat and happy. Get some charcoal tablets and try fasting for a day or two to kill those *****es off.
    Then follow up with plenty of acidophilus as you get back onto solid food to reestablish the good buggies.

    +1. Chicken soup made from actual chicken contains the electrolytes you need.

    Norovirus is nasty and is highly contagious. One of the best defenses is hand washing

    Hope you recover quickly edub.

    OP mentioned it was viral not bacterial.

    I actually started bouncing back in the afternoon yesterday... just in time to attend a friend's wedding last night (and not have to go running out of the ceremony or festivities).

    I wash my hands thoroughly/frequently. From what I've read, symptoms can manifest themselves within 2-24 hours. I notice that many friends and colleagues skip the hand washing all together

    I'm not a doctor and don't play one on TV, but if this cycles through again in the future, you might want to be tested for Giardia.

    Meanwhile, hope things are getting back to normal.

    I am not a doctor either, but I did once audition for the part of Florence Nightingale in a school play, so I hope you will all take my advice with the respect it deserves...

    Why is this thread in the Passion forum?
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Because the man has passion for intestinal bugs. Didn't you read the OP? (I didn't)

    The Passion forum should be re-named General Discussion.

    And then hide a forum way down in the list rather than at the top, so people who want it have to work for it - and call it MTB Passion. Post something in there that is lame, and you get the heave-ho!

    This is one of the better quality passion threads, but thats not hard, at least its not pictures of the fall..

    Or at least its not pictures of other peoples ugly kids that people are expected to give a shite about, or selfies pics of people riding with prophetic quotes under them for the 400th time..

    Are you passionate about it?

    Wait, why? What? How? This thread has "passion" in it's title. It belongs elsewhere...
