Reply to "Gas, gas, gas"

Hi Liz,

I had the same symptoms as you a few weeks after my takedown (Nov 2018).  I had so much pain and gas.  Finally my GI gave me Cipro and within 24 hours I felt so much better.  I continued on that for 2 weeks and after taking me off all the symptoms came back.  To make a long story short, I was on and off Cipro until they decided I have chronic pouchitis and now I don't go off antibiotics.  I take Cipro (500mg) in the morning and Flagyl (500mg) in the evening.  With these meds, I finally feel normal.  I've tried to reduce the amount I take and within a few days my symptoms return.  So I've come to terms with always being on meds but it's so worth it.  I hope you find relief soon.
