Uff-da,
If your antibiotics were either clindamycin or Bactrim/Septra (sulfamethozole and trimethoprim...pardon the spellings), make sure they culture for Clostridium difficile (C-Dif for short). It's a bug that is getting particularly virulent and can cause MURDEROUS diarrhea. It had been a benign colon resident but is getting more and more vicious after it's competetors are being wiped out by these broad spectrum colon antibiotics.
