Hi! I don't know the answer to your question! But I go for this test in Dec. I have had tests for ever!! Do you feel better now that you've started treatment?
I have been gradually feeling better, but the odd think is that the breath test showed the same or higher levels of methane. It's very strange results. Most people respond to the antibiotics and generally do feel better if thats is what they have. Test is no big deal just boring sitting around breathing into a bag every 15 minutes for up to 3 hours. Take something to keep you busy. Hope it goes well for you. What type of symptoms are you experiencing?
Test does sound boring! I have uncontrollable diahrrea. I have no notice that I have to go until it happens and then I have to get on a toilet in recoed time or I mess myself. It's so embarrassing to ad mit and I have been avoiding going anywhere where I might have to eat, because it ususallu happens shortly after eating. Had many tests and now we're going to do this one. I sure hope you are feeling better soon, it's not fun to not be able to be yourself and just enjoy our lives!
