Hi Hopefull-- hey, keep us informed on the fecal bacteriotherapy. I have printed out and kept all the articles on it, such as those on Bardody's instute's website, and I ponder even trying to do it myself (minus the antibiotic regimen), since mixing feces and saline and getitng a bunch of enemas wouldn't be all that complicated. Of course, this therapy is based entirely on a couple of small studies with a dozen or so people, so it may have been a fluke- but it sounds harmless enough, if one gets the donor (ideally a spouse, sibling or someone similar whose history you know)'s stool and blood tested for infections. Heck, it is on my "must try" list before resorting to surgery, so that if I do it it wil be without any 'what if' thoughts.
