I will be happy to help. The fact that you are taking antibiotics for over a month will completely alter your bowels, since there is "good" bacteria in your bowels that is actually getting killed with the antibiotics. Therefore this can give a potential for "bad" bacteria to invade your bowels, and produce those symptoms that you are describing such as diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Some antibiotics by itself can have these side effects.
You should have a urine culture and get the appropriate antibiotic to cure your bladder infection, as these usually can be taken care with a 2 week course of antibiotics. If your diarrhea is too bad, you should get stool studies for cultures, and particularly get tested for a bacteria called "C diff" (Clostridium difficile), which is fairly common in patients taking antibiotics.
Regarding the H Pylori infection, this is usually cured with a short course of 2-3 medications which are given for 10-14 days. You should get checked to see if you got cured (with either a stool test for H Pylori, or a breath test), since sometimes the H pylori bacteria is resistant to the antibiotics given.
In the meantime, I would recommend you taking probiotics, yogurts, and talk to your primary care physician for medications and tests to be done.
Hope that helped!

I was diagnosed with GERD and H-pylori infection that is, my doctor said i had some sort of ulcer in the stomach. The doctor put me on a &-day course of Strong proton pump inhibitors[# tablets in the morning and three in the evening.The brand was Pantop HP kit (].Soon after that i started experiencing irregular bowel movements,bloating,irritation in bowels,etc and spent a lot of time in the bathroom and i had to go frequently. MY doctor said i was suffering from POST_INFECTIOUS IBS(irritable bowel syndrome). It started getting worse.MY body couldn t handle caffeine(be it in coffee or energy drinks) and i rarely had a solid bowel movement.I also experienced mucus in my stool.And the worst part was my morning coffee made me spent 30-40 minutes in the bathroom.Along with stool i also have to urinate frequently as my urinary bladder feels the urgency to evacuate. MY doctor prescribed a Probiotic called BECELAC-pb and asked me to continue for a long period of time. My question is will i be able to have a normal lifestyle once the course is complete.? Will My body be able to handle coffee and cool drinks(I love coffee a great deal).?Are there any (even minor) side-effects of becelac-pb.Will I be able to spent less time in the bathroom and worrying about my bowel movements.? Please answer all my questions in detail. I am very depressed about living life this way.Sometimes i feel it s not worth living like this.I ve always been a jovial person but this thing is changing me and making me frustrated. Please let me know of any permanent cures of post infectious IBS. Thank You.

Hi Doctor , I have been experiencing bad GI issues since last 5 years. About 4 years back when doctor had diagnosed, it was told me that I have hyper acidity. Then after 2 years when I had similar issues with severe severe back pain, hunger pain and stomach pain it was told me that I had acid reflux and Lax LES issue. This year about 4 months back my symptoms became very severe. Started getting burning sensation in my food pipe and throat. I could not eat chilly, spicy food or even drink milk. I was having severe pain below my diaphragm on my stomach area. Sometimes it was a burning and some times a sharp pain. After doing endoscopy it was seen that there were red colouring or inflammation around my LES area. I had PPI for one month. The symptoms had slowly reduced .. But I could not still take even mild spicy food. Then Doctor did a H Pylori test and it came positive. So is this due to H Pylori infection?
