May I know if he has vomiting and fever too?
Did he pass blood in the stool?
no vomiting no fever
no blood in the stool

Is he taking any medicines for constipation?
Let me brief you.
Your symptoms is probably having infective gastroenteritis where the probable cause could be amoeba (parasite) or bacterial.
I would suggest you to take him to a nearby hospital.
In the meantime, you can try fenugreek seeds.
Ask him to drink plenty of water and take oral rehydrating salts (ORS) along with it.
can i give him lopramide now for temperory relief?
You can also add ORS and sporolac tablet 1 tablet twice a day to it.
we have this tablet
Diarrhea can cause dehydration. In some one with nephrectomy this needs to be addressed at the earliest.
Sporlac - Lactic Acid Bacillus
should this be given to him?
Start him on ORS + sporolac (lactic acid bacillus) tablets.
Encourage him to drink plenty of water.
Fenugreek seeds have useful benefits too.
the dietician had told not to take fenugreet seeds
i have powdered fenugreek seeds
should i give him?
and how much?
I am not sure why fenugreek seeds are contraindicated,
but if they have advised him not to take it, do not take them.
Start him on other treatment, and visit a nearest hospital.
There they can start him on antibiotic treatment.
Have you followed?
Do you have any other query?
have given him the tablet
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
I wish a speedy recovery of your husband.
