I would recommend re-testing for Giardia eventhough your mother has
been treated for that. Sometimes a second course of treatment may be
necessary. If Giardia has been iradicated , then there are different
possibilities. A certain number of patients develop a condition called
"Irritable Bowel Syndrome" after a few weeks. Other condition to consider
is "Colitis" which is a little more serious. Regardless, your mothher should
see a digestive disease specialist who can advice properly after performing
some tests which may include blood,stool tests and perhaps an examination
of the lining of the colon through a scope (Sigmoidoscope or Colonoscope).I also suggest avoiding dairy products and eat yoghurt or buttermilk to improve the good bacteria in
the intestines.
Good luck.
