Dear Sara B
I am sorry that you have been experiencing problems with your bowels after having an infection. Did anyone recommend that you should be taking probiotics or "good microorganisms'? If you read this week's DietDoc Topic on "Probiotics help for inflammatory bowel disease' and also click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'DietDoc's articles' and read Articles 123 and 124 about healthy colon practices, you will see what to eat to keep your colon healthy. I would recommend that you try ‘Bifidoflora’ which you can buy at health shops or dietitians as a probiotic to assist with constipation.
