Symptoms: Nausea activity in pack passage and upper GI tract
C Diff Gone
Hi guys haven’t been on this in a long time. I have been really busy over Christmas. So back in October I had a fecal transplant which I taught had not worked as my symptoms persisted for weeks. I tested negative for c diff 3 times now and I’m in the all clear. On a daily basis I still feel a small bit nauseous and my upper stomach and throat would rumble a lot. I spoke with my GI about this and he said it was a side effect to my asacolon so we reduced the dosage, but it still hasn’t fixed it! On the plus side I’m having normal stools twice a day now. I’ve managed to get all my energy back and went back to work in November:) I feel this is remarkable considering I used to wake up nauses every morning and litteraly had no energy to get out of bed. I’m just wondering if it’s only UC I have and my c diff infection is gone then why is my upper GI Tract so active? Any one else experienced this before? I would enco urage anyone who is going through a tough time to stay strong! I’ll have UC a year now in February and I’ve gone from 30 bowel movements a day to 2 which is pretty remarkable. I’m not gonna lie it was extremely hard for me and for the people around me but it does get better! As I said it took till November for my symptoms to settle! I’m currently on infliximab every 8 weeks I take asacolon pantup and also take alflorex to keep all that good bacteria in my gut! When I have activity in the back passage I take pred foam enema which helps :) hope this helps people to stay positive! Things might not be great but don’t worry guys we will get there :D
Sometimes peppermint helps with my nausea
