Hi, I had an infection by the giardia parasite after a trip to India. It took nearly 2 months for my gp to prescribe treatment and it seems that the delayed treatment has resulted in damage to my gut. I am waiting to see a consultant but my gp says I will probably have IBS from now on. I am following a gluten and dairy free diet but still have episodes of diarrhoea approximately every 7 to 10 days. I was wondering whether I can expect this to improve or is this a typical IBS pattern? I know everyone is different but am interested to know whether this would be considered severe or fairly average. Thanks in advance for any ideas and feedback.
