Push your dr for a colonoscopy. The good news would be threr is nothing wrong and you can relax, the other side of the coin...It can be treated. Don't prolong, if you are not satisfied, seek another opinion!!

Sounds like you might have colitis caused by the antibiotics. This can be treated with flagyl.
