Talking Flagyll

a 7 day course of Flagyl cured most of my problems.

I couldn't eat anything hardly for the last two months, i'm eating salad now, fruit, chocolate whatever.

My doctor thought i had IBS, he tested me for bacteria, parasites, and found nothing. He did an upper gi with small bowel follow through and discovered i had rapid transit (gastric dumping)

My symptoms were: Low energy, Fatigue, Diarreah or Loose bowels that were generally yellowish. The only foods i was able to tolerate at the end were rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, turnip, yogurt, fish i wasn't able to tolerate any fats, any other vegetables, or meats.

The flagyl did it for me, i know it doesn't do it for everyone, and i've tried to revamp my diet to be healthier because i don't want to go back to whatever H_____ i was in. I take flax seed oil now when i think of it, eat more yogurt, and i'm still dealing with bacterial vaginosis, but for the most part, i'm way better.

Needless to say i avoid rice, as i lived on it for two months, instead of a bowel movement every 3 - 4 days i have one or two a day now, but beats diarreah.

Just thought i'd post this followup.

Good luck.
