Hi I am a 21 year old male in NYC.
to give you quick recap
18-traveled to south america, got infection given antibiotics then c.diff after
came back 6 months later
then given vancomycin
19 still had issues, diarrhea,gas,pain, flare ups,
20- finally diagnose with IBS
tried every probiotic from here to the moon and back...no real help.
21- diagnosed with SIBO, given xifaxin...didn't do anything, actually made me feel worse..
and now just recently i was still diagnosed with SIBO so my GI gave me metronidazole...and my stomach is in shambles, my gas and stool smell so bad..like you need a hazmat suit to be near them, also i'm in a lot of pain, should i be taking a probiotic with metronidazole? I'm already dairy free and pretty much gluten free.
if anyone can help me out here I'd really appreciate some advice/support , I also take off to Paris tomorrow night so i don't know how i'll do in another country?
