I also convinced the GI doc to prescribe xifaxin (antibiotic) just in case it’s SIBO but health insurance refused to pay (around $1000), stating I hadn’t tried diet modification or daily doses of Imodium. I’m almost desperate enough to ask friends traveling to Ecuador this winter if they can try to get it without a script and probably for much less money. It’s commonly prescribed for traveler’s diarrhea anyway.
I know everyone can relate in that it stops us from doing things we want to do! Like traveling and going out to eat without knowing where the bathroom is and if there’s more than one stall! I feel positively neurotic sometimes! Am I crazy that I shy away from riding in other people’s cars or just walking around town, especially after eating! Today, a friend invited me to travel with her to Arizona. I wanted to say YES and I did(!) but my mind instantly got busy calculating how I will deal with it. Take Imodium every day? Will it work? Will I have an accident? Should I cut back on eating? And how many days can a person go without ‘going?’ Should I stop or cut back on the hormones? Will that even help?!
It’s a wild carnival ride some days.
