You might want to try in addition papaya and pineapple enzymes (bundled together in 1 pill or chewable) .this was recommended by a dietician I saw. I have decided after 6 weeks they are helping with bloating.
@pibacher My gastroenterologist suggested I take Florastor. I continue to take it or another brand of S. Boulardii every single day. It's the one probiotic that gets through the acid in our stomachs and goes to work in our GI tracts. I have not had a Cdiff relapse since Oct. 2018. Thank the good Lord.
