Q1. WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO UNDERGO INTESTINAL FLORA TRANSPLANTATION AT OUR INSTITUTE?
I found out that I could take it in Tokyo.
Q2. DID YOU RECEIVE SUFFICIENT EXPLANATION AND SUPPORT FROM THE MEDICAL INSTITUTION FROM THE TIME OF YOUR TRANSPLANT APPLICATION UNTIL AFTER THE TRANSPLANT WAS COMPLETED?
The door to the treatment room has a glass window and is in full view from the hallway, so I felt uncomfortable every time I changed my clothes. I would like to ask for consideration so that the inside cannot be seen from the hallway.
I appreciated that the response was courteous and helpful.
Q3. HOW HAVE YOUR SYMPTOMS CHANGED AFTER THE TRANSPLANT?
Although I still have a tendency to feel anxious, I think the anxiety I always felt has lessened compared to before the transplant.
Serotonin levels increased slightly.
Q4. IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN THE INTESTINAL BACTERIA THAT BECAME YOUR FRIENDS THROUGH TRANSPLANTATION, PLEASE TELL US ABOUT ANY LIFESTYLE HABITS OR WAYS OF THINKING THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO MAINTAIN AFTER TRANSPLANTATION.
I have changed my diet. I have been eating brown rice, trying to be gluten-free, and eating more root vegetables.
I also try to exercise moderately.
Q5. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THOSE WHO ARE GOING TO HAVE A TRANSPLANT OR ARE UNSURE ABOUT IT?
It is expensive and not easily recommended, but if you have been suffering from this problem for many years, it may be an option for you to consider.
At least I was less anxious about it.
Q6. PLEASE GIVE A MESSAGE TO THE DONOR WHO PROVIDED THE STOOL FOR THE TRANSPLANT.
Thanks to you, the anxiety I have been suffering from for many years has eased a bit and become easier. Thank you so much.
Q7. PLEASE LET US KNOW ANY OTHER COMMENTS, OPINIONS, OR REQUESTS YOU MAY HAVE.
Since then, I have been working hard on my intestinal activity, but I am not sure if I am doing it correctly and the tests to find out are expensive, so I would be happy if the cost aspect could be somehow reduced.
