I have SIBO after right hemicolectomy with removal of the ileocecal valve. Since my flare was treated with antibiotics and the diarrhea went away my colon doesn't move. My GI put me on Align probiotic, IBGard, and Colace( Colace everyother day). My intestines and colon still don't move. And I didn't have hard stools. I too have hypothyroid due to Hashimotos Disease. I take levothyroxine and my levels are within normal range.
I asked my GI about Motegrity and he said it would give me diarrhea. Isn't there a medication for bowel stimulation that doesn't cause diarrhea?
I take Prunelax every 5 days and prepare to stay at home on that day. Suggestions I can ask my GI about? I see him on April 4th.
