Antibiotic to probiotic

My new GI specialist (only deals with rare GI diseases) called me today to see what my issues are. I can’t afford the 400 dollar every 2 week VSL#3 that is a probiotic, so she has free samples she will give me. Also told me that Walmart has it less expensive since they have a deal with the manufacturer. Going off Flagyl in 3 days to try it out.

I might not even have pouchitis. My disease sucks so we will see what is going on in there June 7 when I have my pouch and stomach scoped. June is so far away. Need answers for my suffering.

Just wish I had the energy to fight Tricare over VSL#3. They claim it is a food so won’t cover any of it. Bah!
