I got Giardia about 9 weeks ago. I believe the parasites are gone because I no longer have the foul, greasy stools I had initially. However, I still have nearly constant pain in my guts somewhere. I also have some return of loose stool every few weeks. It isn't full diarrhea but close!
I have been avoiding lactose for a while now and that seemed to help some for a couple weeks. Now I'm also avoiding gluten. Hopefully I can get out of pain and normalize my bowels. I seem to swing back and forth between too firm and too loose.
Does anyone have any experience with returning totally to normal after Giardia?
P.S. Don't wash your dishes on a canoe trip in the river...
