Went through three antibiotic treatments for c.diff and have been "clear" of that infection since end of December but have been dealing with PI-IBS ever since (colonoscopy in January ruled out IBD, etc. for causes of my symptoms).
Have been doing better the last few weeks or so aside from intermittent colon pains, rumbling stomach, and persistent food intolerances. My only, main concerns at the moment is a fast transit time resulting in a lot of undigested food and black "specks" found occasionally on the toilet paper after wiping (truly hope this is not too TMI).
My stools are normal colored and I never see the black specks on/in the stool, just when wiping. Have heard it could be undigested food (banana, spinach, iron rich foods, etc.), bacteria die-off (would hope not 4ish months after c.diff), or, of course, blood from upper portions of my GI.
Going to call my GI about this but curious if anyone has experienced similar and if they determined a cause. Additionally, do I just accept my new, rapid transit or is there way(s) to slow down my digestion?
