Hi XXXXXX

Thanks for writing in

Constipation will gradually pass away with regular diet as you would have been away from balanced diet due to enteric

I would suggest you continue Pan 40 for another two weeks and metrogyll is known to cause digestive problems

You may go for swimming

Gradually start normal diet over a period of two weeks

Hope this helps

Thanks Doctor.
I have a small query.

Currently I am taking Pre-Pro medicine after lunch and dinner, is it fine or shall I switch to Pan 40. And for how many more days.

Also currently I am having Dal, Daliya, Milk, biscuits and Juice only. No fruits or vegetables. Whenver I take salads I vommit. Will I recover from this.

What kind of diet should I follow and for how many days.

Dear XXXXX

Pre-Probiotic and Pan are two different medicines and you need to continue both

You need to take Salads and vegetables if you want to avoid constipation

You have to avoid fermented and junk food

Hope this helps
Wishing you a healthy life

Thanks Again Doctor.

Intake of salads induces Vommit, what to do?

Do you recommend blood test after a period of 1 week or so to check status on Typhoid.

Also do you recommend Vaccination for Typhoid and after what period as this is the second time I am suffering from typhoid within 6 months.

No need clinically if you are Ok wait till 6 weeks of normal temprature
