Thanks for your query.Based on the fact that you have posted .It appears that your husband has undergone IlioRectal anastomosis and colectomy .Since he is getting loose watery motions frequently, possibility of he getting dehydration can not be ruled out. His sweating may be due to dehydration leading to hypotension. Is he passing sufficient quantity of Urine?Please consult Physician or treating Dr for clinical evaluation and treatment.
