Unfortunately, I am not local to the Mayo Clinic. There are plenty of B&Bs, hotels, and charitable housing within walking distance. Due to my condition, I needed a private bathroom, so I opted to rent for 1 month a room in a European-style apartment house with a communal kitchen, yet each room had private bathrooms with showers. Most of the residents were visiting students or doctors, or resident or fellow doctors, nurses, etc. I was the only patient at the time. It was 3 blocks from the main clinic. Nice town, thankfully for such a huge investment in time & $$. Afterall, we poop on way or another for the rest of our lives!
