How much of the probiotic are you taking? My doctor prescribes 2-3x as much when I am on antibiotics. Any form of antibiotic destroys my system and I had problems for a week or more but now I start taking the additional probiotic 2 days before the antibiotic (when possible) and continue the additional dose until a week after I am finished. This has helped me tremendously. Additionally the type of probiotic makes a difference.

Good luck with your surgery!

Hi Magic50
I just want to wish you all the luck in the world with your hysterectomy next month. It's a good idea to talk to your gastro Dr...I've been keeping a log book by my computer to journal ideas and what I think beside my food that might trigger my bouts of D. Last night was terrible...we went out to eat at a restaurant and it was like a fondu...shortly after leaving the restaurant my D began leaving me in very stressful situations trying to board the subways and get myself home...it was absolutely awful...you guys have all been there/done that...how stressful is that eh? Oh well, today so far so good :)

Keep us updated

My IBS problem went from one to the other resulting diarrhea to constipation, eventually sending me to a surgeon to have hemoroid surgery. I was seen a month prior to a doctor assistant who suggested that I begin countin fiber and using Miralax. I did this faithfully and when I went to see the surgeon, he felt the improvement did not warrant surgery. Yay! He said that he wished he could get all of his patients to go this route. I still have occasional bouts but they are usually brought on by my diet. I know something is bad for me and still eat it which wouldn't be so bad if I just controlled how much at a time.

question for everyone i am have a hysterectomy next month but my biggest concern is they allways pre medicate with antibiotics wich i know is very necessary...but i also know its going to wipe out my intestines etc...the last surgery i had was a breeze it was the intestinal stuff that made me sick(vomiting,diarreah,cant eat heartburn)i lost 10 pounds it took a month before i could get things under control again...i am also going to ask my gastro dr. what she might suggest...just had my colonoscopy wich didnt find anything so still a diagnoses of ibs-d that all went well except 2nd day out severe diarreah then it corrected itself...i take probiotics allready and am on a low residue type diet..
