Permanent SIBO due to removal of ileocecal valve

Julynn- I have heard that the natural antibiotics and Oil of Oregano have worked for some people. I was never able to find the exact dosage of each or a naturopath that could oversee this for me. Please let me know what your dosages are. My new GI changed me from colestipol, which was prescribed by my internist, to colesevelam ( generic Welchol). He said they are similar " sister " drugs, but he preferred colesevelam. I would never consider the powder- I heard it was nasty and the pills are easy. the generic is not too expensive. Thank you gobi- I was not told at the onset that it needed to be taken with or after food- on an empty stomach I didn't get stomach pains, but a metallic taste in my mouth and reflux. So glad I found others with a similar issue. I know for sure I needed a bile acid sequestrant

Thanks for responding as always. Just called the Pharmacy and the only thing they have here is the Cholestyramine so I won't have a choice. So when my GI Dr prescribes it I will just have to do the best I can with it. I am basically doing the dosage that is on the bottle of the Oil of Oregano so will keep you posted. I do find though that even though I do have watery stools while on it (most of the time) I do not have the diarrhea frequency of 8 – 10 times a day like I do when I am not on it. So that is why I say it seems to stabilize me to some degree. I do have a (sort of naturopath) here but not one I put a great deal of confidence in so am doing this sort of on my own with guidance from my very good GI Dr and works with me on my wishes also. So he monitors me in all that I do and am greatly thankful for that! Where I live, there are not options to – (so called – find other doctors or Naturopaths). Till next time!
