    I've had a bout of this for 2 weeks now. Went to emergency room and the drs. I'm on two antibiotics. Weak and feel dead.

    I had it so bad one time I was hospitalized for 9 days ...

    The only antibiotic that helps me is Cipro...

    Have you ever had a colonosopy...

    This should be your next step..

    My colon is so bad they wanted to take out my whole colon..

    But I refused and just watch what I eat...

    Try to find some Papaya juice....its very soothing for the colon...

    I have had it 18 times in my life. I know the symptoms very well now, and on the first & slightest symptom, I head for either my Dr office or ER and get on antibiotics.

    I can't take Cipro, I have to take Levaquin and Flagyl, both are very powerful and have nasty side effects.

    The one thing I suggest, is to eat lots of fiber, everyday to keep things *moving* along.

    I have had it for at least 10 years. Fortunatly I have had only one big issue with it. The rest are one that come and go without medical help.
