User :   hi,
I am 29 years male.
First I would like share my history with you.
In March 2010, I had some infection and doctor suggested me take Kalaracid (I have taken it for 3 days) then later he asked me to take Dylacinc (Clindamycin). I have taken the Dylacinc for 2 - 3 days, after taking Dylacinc I suffered from diarrhea. I have changed my Doctor and the new doctor shifted me again to Kalaracid, I have taken it for 5 days. in total I have taken medicine for 11 Days.
From the day I have taken Dylacinc I suffered from diarrhea. I thought it will settle by it self. I usually go to washroom three to four times a day with cramps.
Now yesterday i had very few amount of Red blood with Mucus.
In this course of time following of my tests are done advised by my GP.
1. Feccal Occult Blood done twice (Negative)
2. ESR (Value is 5 - Refference is 0-15)
3. C Reactive Protein ( Value is 0.6- Refference is less than 5)
4. CBC (Perfect hb is 16.9)
5. LFT (Perfect all in normal range just slight high protein)
6. Stool Culture done twice (always ok just occasional WBC seen)
7. Stool Clostridum Difficile Toxin (Not detected)
Two weeks before I have heard about one person who had colon cancer after having episodic diarihia and constipation, after that day I am very much worried and alot stressed. after this news I have started feeling mild pinching pain in my abdomin on differnet places.
Please Guide.
