Hi, I have the same problem as you. I just did a round off antibiotic, and am now trying to figure out what to do.

For me the diet has been key after antibiotics. No complex carbs that ferment and stay in the gut for the bad bacteria to feed on. I eat protein, fruits and vegetables. Because I lost so much weight, my nutritionist has me taking supplemental enteral shakes (enzymes)which my body absorbs very quickly before the bad bacteria can get a hold of it. It is a very slow healing process. I think diet is a key component of maintaining remission if we can call it that.
