      Thank you sweetie, I didn't know you are in UK. I'm in Oregon USA. Hope your cat scan is a positive one and you are feeling better. I've got probiotics and probiotic foods along with prebiotic foods to help me get through the antibiotics. Dr said to just eat low fodmap diet for now. Not worry about changing diet yet. I just hate antibiotics make me feel worse and wipe me out. Prayers for all good news for you this week. Hugs 😇

      😢😥😭Oh no I am so so sorry, that really sucks! Sounds like effection never went away. Try to be positive, maybe it’s for the best and you can get back to a normal life. Feel better again. I hear a lot of people do better after the surgery. I know if I have another Flare I’ve alread decided to go for surgery. And with this SIBO really sucks. I would think they would pass on doing colonoscopy they can do all that while having surgery. I’d double check on that. My thoughts and prayers are with you sweetie. The 20th is right around corner it’ll go by fast and you’ll be great! Stay strong ! Keep me updated I’m here for ya. 🙏??🌸🌺

      I’d be scared to sweetie, try to keep on liquids, beef bone broth, you know the routine, and your vitamins and probiotics. Rest , Tylenol and heating pad, do you journal? Or have hobbies? Read books, watch TV. Maybe make a list of things you need to pack for when you go to hospital so your boyfriend can help with that. Do u have someone there with you, to help till he gets home. I cannot even imagine what your going through but try to stay positive and de- stress, I know that’s hard. And scary. But I believe in my heart the surgery is your cure and will help you get your life back. As for the colonoscopy I feel your gut cannot handle it right now and they can do that test during surgery. I’d wait . Hope GI calls you soon and gets things in order. Wish I was there to help you, but just know I’m here for you and huge hugs and prayers. Keep me posted ok. And know it’s ok to just lay around do nothing but cry, be angry, scared. P****d. Let it all out. Scream ! 🙏😢??

      Oh my this is happening fast for you, which is a good positive thing, you will be better with no more pain. Just recovery time then poof all better. Something to look forward to. 🤗 In the moment though I know it’s hard to not be anxious. So you are not doing colonoscopy at all? That’s a good thing in my opinion unless they find it absolutely necessary before surgery. Have you tried Brags Apple cider vinegar with warm water? Chamomile or peppermint teas. I just found some good smoothies recipes on Pinterest for bloating gas constipation. Ones without dairy or coconut milk. Metamucil I take every other day. Well I’m praying for you and hope you can get some relief. Did they give you something for pain or anxiety? 🙏🌺🌸
