I am not sure but you can try to ask for IV AB treatment to your physician, at least it won't disturb your digestive system.

I have had a bad flare up recently (very bad), I was in excrutiating pain, so I rush to the emergencyl (it was on saturday night and in a foreign country)...they gave me only IV treatement (antibiotics+painkiller), there was no side effect at all and this calm down my symptoms very quickly.

did you have to take oral anti biotics after the iv treatment 

this particular time, I had to do one IV treatment per day during 3 days...after they gave me oral antibiotic but i am not sure it is useful.

....another time my urologist has detected e-coli in my urine after prostate massage which was sensitive only to IV drug (ceftriaxone), I got treated with IV only.
