      SMT4, just a question to further clarify your question. Can you tell me if you are having any trouble keeping foid down? The bacterial infections can be calmed with daily use of a probiotic as well as any prescribed abx your doc may prescribe. But what type of intestinal pain are you experiencing? Any nausea/vomitng or loose stools? Carm RN.

      Radioactive iodine can do all kinds of damage to the body. How long ago did you have the treatment? Make sure you are eating a clean well balanced diet and drinking plenty of water. Hopefully this problem will correct itself soon.
