I might do a FMT at home. I've found a good donor and I have some questions before doing the FMT.
Do you think we should clean the bowels before the first FMT?
What do you think of fasting before the first fmt?
Should I use probiotics after the FMT? (I read that it might be good to help repopulate the new microbiota)
I also have the option of trying the rifaximin 550mg x 3 /day for 14 days. Should I try first the Rifaximin or the FMT?
How are those who made their FMTs? My question is : Are you (still) "cured"??

If you really plan to DIY, take a gentle bowel cleanser to soften stools 2 days prior FMT. 2 caps of Oxy-Klenz with evening meal during 2 days.
Pre and probiotics could help...
You have to know that most of the anaerobe bacteria will die during the process, so I don't think DIY FMT is a very effective option.
