Re: calling on anyone treated for SIBO
Ive been thru the same thing. i finished my 2 weeks of xifaxan, and started a probiotic about two weeks ago...my stool one minute can be actually normal for once in 2 years, or it can be diareha. i also notice im getting that really bad smell back i had with the sibo, so im thinking that i have to go back on antibiotic and go back to a bland diet for a little longer. i have mine bad, it took 7 months to even figure it out, and i know ive been dealing with it longer, it just got to the point i could not eat. my np did not believe me something was wrong and sent me to psychiatrist, (i refered myself to gi and they gave me the test which tested positive very quickly. i started introducing new foods and i know im getting it back....lay off sugars bad bacteria thrives on that and grease, and probably more. you can eat veggies that are cooked not raw, and same with fruits except for bananas. so far this is what ive learned. im back to living on chicken and rice soup and peanut butter and bananas, which i cant stand any of them, but gotta do it, you want to starve the bad bacteria so it cant grow, and from what ive read alternate the antibiotic and probiotic because the anti is going to kill everything in there so wasting money. that is also how the dr prescribed it to me. it'll take a few days for the xifaxan to kick in and you will get starving just really really watch what you eat or you are defeating the purpose. it sucks ive given up everything, but hopefully within time ill kick its arse and so will you! good luck, give me update, its nice to talk to someone going thru the same thing.
