collagenous colitis (CC) due to entamoeba histolytica (e-hist)

I was recently diagnosed with CC and doctors think it was caused by the E-Hist they found. First we (hopefully) killed the parasite and in the mid week of the second run with antibiotics to kill the infection caused by E-hist, I'm still wondering if I will ever heal. Had the "D" for 3 months before my last resort of colonoscopy found all this. they see no other damage in the colon nor have I ever been much of a gluten eater. As for milk products, the last 5 years have only been raw milk-100% grass fed cheese, periodically organic yogurt/kefir, 100% grass fed butter. In other words, my diet has been relatively free of the common culprits that cause colon problems. But I do eat lots raw foods, including 100% grassfed beef jerky (my main meat), salmon (I live in AK), and too many popsicles. I can't find anywhere on the web similar scenarios to see how I will fair after the antibiotics. I wonder how long before I will go back to normal or if ever. I'm 58, white, female. How long does it take the colon to heal from CC if the threat (E-hist) is removed?

thank-you, I have been there. Lots to read.I came to realize that if someone gets well from CC, they might not followup that resolution on the web. Got a little a depressed as I didn't find many where resolution was, EXCEPT you. I'm sorry you had to go 3 years, I went 3 months with about a month of treatment and got to feeling like I was in hell. What was your cause? Interesting the "potty people" explain how fairly common this is. That leads me more to believe that the colon is trying to protect the rest of the body from whatever is attacking it, and forms the collagen as a protective layer so not to get into the blood. curious, what do you think your cause was? Did you share that with others? God bless you and hand tough!

This is the only place I have found that really understands CC! I have been in remission now for 6 months after 3 years of not understanding the cause. Go to this site and read read read and read the forum and ask questions. www dot microscopiccolitis dot org
