I’m glad to hear you plan to travel. If you travel internationally, I suggest you also get medical evacuation insurance. My doctor recommended it for me.

I like the way you explained the process of working with a nutritionist to carefully test which foods are your FODMAP. This has helped me tremendously. I would like to add that I am doing well with drinking Keifer every day. My doctor suggested that I make my own, so I have been watching youtube videos every day and assembling the few items I need to make it.
I have tortuous colon too. In May I will have my third special colonoscopy at Mayo Scottsdale. They put me under with general anesthesia and use a pediatric scope. I also do a two day prep, so I have two nights of spending time in the hotel bathroom. I hope this helps.
I’m interested in your question about seeing a geneticist. I did see one at Mayo in the past regarding numerous polyps found during colonoscopy. Can you please tell me why you think a geneticist would be helpful? Also, thanks for bringing some people into this thread.
During my annual exam, I learned that I am a carrier for the c diff toxin. However, there is no treatment indicated at this time because I don’t have any symptoms. My doctors seem very blasé about this, but I am worried about how this will affect my health going forward. I drink Keifer daily. I am learning how to make my own Keifer. I travel internationally and follow all the recommendations of my travel doctor. Is there more I should be doing or that I need to know?
