Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Sorry to hear about your symptoms.
You have likely got an intestinal infection from the colonoscopy.
Giardiasis, E coli, Salmonella are such organisms commonly causing this type of symptoms.
Since symptomatic treatment did not work for you, you will need to see your doctor soon or antibiotic therapy.
Cipro and flagyl combination will help to resolve the symptoms within a week.
You can also start taking a probiotic daily like Culturelle to improve the intestinal flora.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
