SIBO due to structural problems (past GI surgeries and adhesions.)
I'm searching for SIBO in the forum but nothing specific to it comes up. My wife suffers from SIBO due to structural problems in her small colon from past surgeries and adhesions. Further surgery is out of the question due to problems healing. Her only relief has come from taking Xifaxin, although the gas build up and pain never completely stops, probably because her small colon never completely gets rid of the overgrowth. Other antibiotics tear her whole digestive system up. She doesn’t have IBS, just pain and pressure after eating anything. She eats no sugar, since sugar really makes it worse.
1. Does anyone stay on Xifaxin most of the time?
2. Also, does anyone use CBD with THC for the pain? Occasionally, the pain gets so bad she takes Tramodol, but hates the way it makes her feel after she stops taking it. It also slows her digestion down.
