I have been tested for c diff and a bunch of other things. Everything normal. I'm out of options at this point. The tincture vs the octreotide is what I am facing now. Have an appointment in a few weeks and will discuss with GI.

I'm frustrated as I have been dealing with this for years yet somehow these drs think that it's OK to have diarrhea 10x a day and truly I either must be exaggerating or 10x isn't really that bad since I look so good and my electrolytes are good. They seem to overlook that I work real hard in maintaining the salt/fluid balance on a daily basis. I drink a lot of electrolyte water and watch my diet to compensate for the fluid loss. No one really seems to think that taking 8+ loperamide a day in addition to 12+ creon is unusual or excessive and even with that still go 10x a day.
