I am new to this forum but have been a silent reader for few months.. I have been suffering badly for the past 10 months after 10 days of clindamycin. My PCP and GI doctor did the c diff testing twice which came back negative. They also tested me for celiac disease which also came back negative. I have developed several food intolerances after the course of clindamycin. I can't have dairy, red meat, high fiber fruits and vegetables. I am just living on rice, chicken, potatoes, bananas, skinless apples, oatmeal, carrots and few other things. My GI specialist thinks I have got ibs after clindamycin. She wants to do colonoscopy in the near future but I am too scared for it now. I fear those strong laxatives. Did anybody else develop ibs after antibiotics? If I stick to my bland almost brat diet, I am okay but I can't live like that my whole life. Did colonoscopy made your ibs worse and how much time did you need to recover from the effect of those laxatives?
