nerve entrapment/SIBO after bile reflux surgery?
I thought to start here given my issues stemming from bile reflux surgery (roux en y but not for weight loss) 18 months ago. It has been a battle ever since this surgery, but thing had gotten so bad I really had no choice. A few months after the surgery I came down with SIBO due to the antibiotics post surgery taking all the bacteria of my gut. A breath test confirmed this, and a no sugar diet/Xifaxan seemed to do the trick after 5-6 weeks. Things were relatively fine until about 2 months ago when more distinct pain/nausea started up around where my incision is on my stomach (5-6 inches, went through stomach muscle). I figured SIBO was back, but this time the Xifaxan only helped somewhat. My internal med doc said I have nerve entrapment syndrome (as well as SIBO possibly) which is not unheard of after a surgery like this. Anyone out there dealt with this? Just can't imagine dealing with daily abdominal pain and some nausea like this. No appetite either.
