I'm so glad to hear that other people are trying the fecal transplant. I have been doing a lot of reading about it lately and I too will be attempting it here soon. I even went to the extent of getting my husband fully tested. My GI is completely on board with this and has even brought up wanting to do my first one via colonoscopy to get it throughout my colon since I have pancolitis. I havent talked to her recently though, but last time I did, she said the "clinic" is giving her a hard time about it and may not be able to help me afterall. I am keeping my hopes up that she still may, even if I sign a waiver releasing them of any responsibility. I'm very grateful to have such a great doc =) I did want to comment on the baby feces that some have used. I am no expert, but when i brought it up to my GI about using my new born nephew's poo, my doc was against it. She stated that adult samples from a healthy individual would be best b/c they have more bacteria. She states babies have not been exposed to enough to be a great benefit. Now if it worked for others, i think that is wonderful, but I just thought I would throw that out there b/c it does make a little sense. I am curious how it works out for everyone who trys it and I will definitely post once I complete it too.
