Hello - I am only one month post treatment but had the GI problems very severe right after treatment. 2 weeks ago I cut out sugar and heavily processed foods. i also started on Florastor (like an amped up Acidophilus that doesn't need refrigeration). My GI issues improved pretty quickly and are better but not cured. Try some diet changes like no sugar, processed foods & limit your dairy.

Also, there may be other factors contributing to it so good to check in with your doctor just in case.

I had the GI problems and had an endoscopy which showed gastritis heading towards an ulcer.  Doc prescribed prilosec not OTC but a green capsule which has helped greatly

The GI symptoms were the first things to hit post tx.  For me, eating as little processed food as possible, minimal dairy and no meat at all has helped me a lot.

Good luck to you.
