Yup.. start practicing being thorny.... :(Also.. if he is experiencing any weakness or lightheadedness because of the D.... watch out for like loose area rugs etc... or other trip or fall hazards in their home. Maybe a grab bar in the bathroom/shower/tub area... etc might be good.And remind him to take his time getting up and down. The last thing he needs is a broken hip or something on top of everything else!Let me know and keep us posted.All the bestBQ
We tried to get him into another gastro practice in a nearby large city, but they refused to see him because he had already seen a gastro specialist. That makes no sense and I think it is time to be that thorn.

Hi, wondering if you ever figured anything out with your dad? My grandpa is having similar problems after his colonoscopy. He needs direction. Doctors can't seem to help. This has been going on for 3 months, and he is losing weight and energy. Any help would be so appreciated. Thanks

Sometimes nausea can stem from dehydration..... try pushing some fluids.
Also Ginger capsules or Ginger tea can be helpful when trying to quell nausea.
Also have you tried using a probiotic? (Like Align or other good ones?) If you have tried one and it didn;t help..... try another with different bacterial strains. Sometimes when one doesn't help another will.
