Look at the bottom right hand side of this page. The Thomas recipe, Amino acid protocol are listed there. Try to follow those as much as possible, expect 5-7 days of being uncomfortable, sorta like the flu. ( get the ace bandages )!

Force yourself to excercise, eat, (banannas are good), and drink to stay hydrated.
Post and post and whine if it makes you feel better.

Stay on here and talk to people who have been there and can help you through this, it will help, there is a lot of info and helpful folks here.

Good luck.............

You can expect up to 2 weeks feeling cruddy....probably 7-8 bad ones....use a heating pad for abdominal cramps...drink plenty to keep from dehydration ..... use emetrol for stomach and immodium for runs .... ibuprophen 800mg for aches.... benadryl for sleep as needed .... watch a lot of whatever movies yo like t keep your mind off things .... use hot showers/baths frequently .......check out the Thomas Recipe and the Amino Acid Protocols and think about following them .. they are valid.....  and good luck to you - -  keep posting......
