My question is have your guts gone back to normal?

The only thing that seems to help with diarrhea and bloating is Creon (pancreatic enzymes with meals.This is an off label use ) This is an expensive drug the company has a patient assistance program. This is not a total cure for all my bloating,but it has decreased it. The diarrhea is 90% gone. I had tried the FODMAP diet for a year… this showed me some of the foods to stay away from (that cause extreme bloating) you should be on a daily probiotic such as floraster or VSL#3 . No Dr. has been able to give me any answers. Good luck,Happy Easter.

Fri, Apr 12 8:53am · Your experiences with IBS mixed? I feel sick and alone in this. in Digestive Health

I am sorry to hear about your illness. I have had IBS-D all of my life. Then I got C. diff. after Antibiotic usage. I have tested negative but still, experience extreme upper abdominal bloating and pain and stretching feeling (like my abd. will burst.) I had also been on the low fodmapdiet for a year. So my point is …I have been sick since 2/17. Just tell your friends you are fine. Tell the truth to family and get a second opinion from another G.I. person. Post your pain on the blog.

It has been 2 yrs. I am not back to normal yet. Foods that never bothered me now cause extreme bloating. My gastro gave me creon 36,000u/ meal . It stopped the cramping and diarrhea and moderated the bloating. This is an off label use.

I feel so sorry for you and myself. It seems post c.diff. is a way of life now for me . I find no joy in food.( that cuts out a lot of socializing with friends ) I have not felt any hunger since 2/8/17. I only eat when I feel my blood sugar is low. This amounts to 1 mealxday . Have been re-testrd for small bowel over growth but I have no test results yet. Somebody on another blog mentioned DLG for bloating. I have to research that one. I pray daily for relief. It is depressing. I have seen 3 G.I. doctors all "stumped".

You might want to try in addition papaya and pineapple enzymes (bundled together in 1 pill or chewable) .this was recommended by a dietician I saw. I have decided after 6 weeks they are helping with bloating.
