needinfo on cold meds that can be taken after having an ostomy( colostomy)

Post by twelveoaks on Thu Oct 13, 2016 4:27 pm

Recently had a n ostomy and am planning to fly across country. Planes tend to be a hot bed of cold germs. Can you provide any info on cold meds and preventatives ( zinc tabs, etc) that I can take. Can I take Nyquil or benadryl ?

You should not take the advice of strangers on the internet for something like this. Ask your doctor.

Two things you can do before getting on an airplane, wear a mask and or rub a thin layer of Vaseline on the inside of your nostrils to block a virus and keep them from replicating in that warm moist atmosphere.

I asked my doctor (dentist) about the efficacy of dental implants and I am 75 years old so these surgical procedures are not amusing and also dangerous at my age. I told them of my kidney impairment condition and resultant daily ingested medications, some of which were intended to improve blood flow and they still cut into my gums in preparation for teeth implants only to halt in the interim due to extraordinary bleeding. These are long practicing and reputable professionals within a sophisticated international community. Withhold unquestioned trust.

But "questioned trust" beats advice given by posters on the web boards.

Ah, yes.  Unquestioned trust reminds me of an old joke:

Doctor calls a patient and informs  him  that he has some bad news and some worse news.  The doctor asks the patient what news he would like to hear first. The patient responds that he would like the bad news first and the doctor says that he has three days to live. The patient asks, "Good God, Doc, what could be worse news  than that ?" The doctor responds,  "I was supposed to call you two days ago".
