Q1. WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO UNDERGO INTESTINAL FLORA TRANSPLANTATION AT OUR INSTITUTE?
From trust in the teacher.
Q3. HOW HAVE YOUR SYMPTOMS CHANGED AFTER THE TRANSPLANT?
Before the transplant -> I was hopeful and anxious.
As for my medical condition, I had massive diarrhea that happened several times a week, severe pain, and sometimes it made me anemic and I collapsed inside the bathroom. (I also had a brain scan, but it was normal.)
However, after half a year, the frequency of abdominal pain and diarrhea began to decrease. However, there were times when I would get sick again, and at that time I was worried and anxious. I was able to stay healthy more days and go out more days, so perhaps that made me even more anxious when I got sick.
After the end of the program -> The problems that used to occur several times a month are now only once every two months or so, and I am now eating more beans and root vegetables that I could not eat. The amount is being monitored.
I am still careful about my food intake, but the truth is that I have no diarrhea or severe pain at all. I have also gained weight.
The transplant is expensive, but I have regained my health. I would highly recommend it to anyone with the same disease.
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 don’t eat wheat. No whipped cream, no cakes. I do not eat any food from convenience stores. I don’t eat out, French, Italian, Chinese, or Japanese food because I don’t know what spices or additives are in them. 90% of the time, I cook for myself.
Q5. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO THOSE WHO ARE GOING TO HAVE A TRANSPLANT OR ARE UNSURE ABOUT IT?
To each his own, but I think it is better to regret doing something than to regret not doing it.
Q6. PLEASE GIVE A MESSAGE TO THE DONOR WHO PROVIDED THE STOOL FOR THE TRANSPLANT.
I am very grateful. You have changed my life. Thank you very much.
