Bowel issues (Bad bacterias dead)


Recently I got severely affected by bacterial infection which stirred high fever, sore throat and extreme fatigue, I need to visit the emergency to recover and I was prescribed anti-biotics.

Ever since I started taking anti biotics, my bowel movement is extremely regular, no pain, no pushing etc.., etc.,
I had similar experience once I suffered food- poisoning that followed dierrhea. By that time also Doctor prescribed some medication ( I did not even note that) and after taking that, I was very regular for some time.

I suspect the anti-biotics also killed the bad bacterias that usually cause me constipation ( I used to eat lot of restaurant food, lot of bad stuff I agree), even if I do not bounce back to eating the restaurant food often, I am pretty much sure I am likely to run into the old constipation problem. Even if I do not eat bad food for couple days, still my stomach never digests well.

How could I avoid that ?

Can I explain this to Doctor and ask him to recommend anti-biotics to blow those constipation causing bacterias once in six months.

I think I can get good bacterias by consuming yogurt, why to care flushing the bad bacterias then.

Thanks for the patience, it just sounds a puzzle to me but I am trying address my long term problem.

Re: Bowel issues (Bad bacterias dead)

Its more likely that your poor diet is causing your constipation rather than "bad bacteria".

When you have ben ill it is likely that your system has been flushed because of the diarrhea, and then as you fall into your old habits you system slowly gets clogged up.

The must likely culprit is not eating enough fibre.

These are only guesses, as I don't know enough about your eating habits.
