I am sorry you went through all this and hope you are better now. I was diagnosed in July and went through two courses of antibiotic and finished the second one back in Early August. Lost in total about 16 pounds. But we are now November and I am still not great feeling all the fun stuff and the nausea. How long does it take to start gaining weight and for the loose stool and frequency to stop? And is it normal that I still experience nausea?

Hi @mhi, I know that it took some time to normalize the way that I felt and to adjust my diet to gain a little weight back. According to some articles chronic diarrhea can occur and can also be a sign of infection again. Have you checked with your physician about retesting to make sure you haven't had a reoccurrence.
