I am sorry you had the large colon surgery and c diff infection

antibiotics can kill a lot of good bacteria in your body,

you have good bacteria on your skin and in your colon to help with digestion.

you may benefit from taking a probitoic pill daily and eating more yogurt to help add in good bacteria into your system

this can help your bowels work better

and could help with your skin over time

are you taking a probiotic now daily?
