About your sticking to the wall comment -- is that what that link I referred to is talking about too? The "inhibits adherence" thing?
So, any specific amount to give her? Should I limit it to 1cc a day or should I let her go nuts? This is - if she'll actually take it.
I know I haven't gotten much homeopathic advice, but, uh, is this stuff *supposed* to be colorless, odorless, and tasteless? I mean, it just appears as if there's water in there. Weird.
And again, is it really possible there's a stone or other obstruction in there that we aren't seeing on the multiple x-rays and ultrasounds? Or maybe it's just a cystitis I have to somehow deal with. But nothings helping. Hmm.

Yeah, it's homeopathic medicine--it probably is just water in there. The way homeopathy "works" is that they take an active ingredient and dilute it a lot. Then they dilute it some more. Then they dilute it again, and say the water is behaving like the thing that may or may not be in there. Anything that has like "cranberry 3X" or "nightshade 10X" on the back is homeopathic.
Herbal supplements will be listed in mg, or mcg generally. Like "Chanca piedra 200mcg" or "Echinacea 600mg" or "dong quai 50mg". They may not help, they may have harmful effects, but there is an active ingredient.
But then again, I might just be seeing and hearing things and wishing for stuff that I want to happen and it's all in my head. But that's the update for now.
I'm going to go back to see homeopathic doc next week for a follow up, but will probably drop it after that. I'd like to at least have another set of ears to hear Nug's current crying volume and length.
Definitely don't use sweetened cranberry juice.
I'm just catching up with this thread. Hang in there Henry!
Obviously I'll continue to monitor her and see where it goes. Less crying is better than loud and long wheeks every minute. Could it have been the E. Coli wreaking havoc? Does anyone think it's the Bactrim helping vs. the homeopathic stuff?
She's been on Bactrim a few times throughout this whole thing so I don't know why it wouldn't have helped ease the pain before.
