I was told i had some form of colitis of the bowel 15 months ago and was told after many test that the colitis was gone but there were still traces of infection about 8 months ago. The diagnosis was infectious colitis and they told me it had heal but i still have symptoms of bloating, and a urged to poop, i have loose poop most the time and recently mild constipation. I know some of my problems are anxiety but i donĀ“t think all of them.
Yours sincerely,

Hello,
Colon infections should be able to be cleared up completely unless you have some resistant form of infection. You may need a colonoscopy to reassess the situation and see what is going on in your colon. In the mean time avoid all dairy, gluten and citrus and start a daily multivitamin and probiotic
