Has anyone tried Pro Biotics for this type of D?? Last Monday I went into severe D again, however they thought I might have a flu bug. I had no Temp however, I went 19 times in a 10 hour period. I went on Lomotil early Tues. AM, it got better during the day. Finally relief..but sick all week. I went back on Questran (which was working good until Mon) This is my second day back on the Questran, and it doesn't make a bit of difference right now, except it is not runny, it is loose. ( I am sure than that is more than you need to know?) This may get better soon, I hope.
My dumping syndrome does not happen exactly after a meal, it usually come regardless of whether I eat or not. It come in rumbles, cramps and then I hit the bathroom!! The only thing I take that is different, is the Synthroid and it has always given me some D within an hour after taking it or so. I have checked the ingredients, and am not allergic to any of them. I believe the levothyroxine ingredient keeps my bowel in a hyper state, and now with the gall bladder out, it has made it worse.
I write on this board hoping to help someone else, and also get input from others on their experiences. By the way, I tried some calcium, and found the initial BM in the AM was formed and hard, and then after that, everything else was D.... Anyway, I am reading about
Pro Biotics, any input on that as well?..
Happy Sunday!!! Although I am stuck close to the Bathroom on this glorious day in sunny California!!!
