Brief Answer:
Cranberry juice can be had

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It looks like I can get to see your question completely here. Transferred the contents of your question from the previous one.
Yes you can have cranberry juice for the problem you have inspite of the low residue diet you were trying.
Still I was puzzled why was the ketoconazole (anti fungal) pills given to you. Ketoconazole would upset the stomach further.

Brief Answer:
Ketoconazole is not for bacteria

Detailed Answer:
As I said earlier Ketoconazole is not for bacteria it is an antifungal. It has good amount of side effects. So once the course is done you would get back the normal digestion. YOu may want to add some oral probiotics after that to restore the lost digestive bacteria which are useful.
