Sounds like you: were very sick and I certainly hope you have recovered from that ordeal. Yes GI effects from antibiotics typically recover themselves after 1-2 weeks. Using probiotics and/or yogurt and live culture stuff may help with repopulating your colon with beneficial bacteria. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
