I recently had minor surgery 2-1/2 weeks ago. Prior to the surgery, I was given an antibiotic intravenously. A few days after the surgery, I started having upper intestinal pains and developed diarrhea. I am still having the problems.
Antibiotics destroy the good, necessary and essential intestinal flora. Any time you take a course of antibiotics (any kind) you should replace the intestinal bacteria by eating yogurt daily and/or adding acidophilus and other intestinal bacteria as supplemets.
