Has anybody every had severe digestive problems develop after taking antibiotics for a bacteria infection? I took two rounds of antibiotics for hot tub rash back in April 2008 and have had rectal bleeding, weight loss, and stomach rumbling every since. One of the antibiotics, Avelox, lead to a bacteria infection known as C-Difficile. I carried this with me until a Doc. discovered it and treated it in April 2009. Could symptoms be from Post Infection IBS? Life has become down right miserable this past year. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
