I have been reading some of the posts on this site and was hoping for your help. Hubby has had watery diarrhoea since last October. Loads of visits to GP and just given loperamide even though his weight is plummeting. In the end was referred to a geriatrician who sent him for endoscopy . He already had gastritis and duodenitis but they found the latter to be severe this time. He doesn’t see this doctor again until October. Last Monday he was up 7 times in the night and felt so poorly we made a private appointment with a GI consuktant for the following day. This consultant has arranged for a SeHCAT to see what is happening. Looked at google and BAM appears to match his symptoms. This test cannot be done until end of September as we are going on holiday , hopefully, and as you know two visits are required a week apart. Is there anybody who can suggest anything that will help him in the interim? He is doing a dairy free diet for 2 weeks and then wheat free to see if there is a food intolerance. Any advice welcome.
