I had a massive amount of adhesions wrapping around appendix I’ve had multiple abdominal and intestinal surgeries arising from complications of a RNY bypass. I The area around illeocal valve was telescoped into each other I was salivating and dry heaving and had extreme bloating after every meal. Drs resectioned effected areas and that’s when I discovered SIBO. I keep it under control with
Xaflaxin and Flagal The flagal is an antibiotic for the bypassed part of the stomach while the xaxflaxin works on the bacteria in the intestine. Two years out
The flare ups seemed to subside Good luck

Thanks Nova. How did you find out you had SIBO? You take a breath test? What is your Xifaxan dosage that keeps the bacteria under control?
