Brief Answer: Keep on giving sips of ORS to maintain hydration. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic. Continue Taxim-O, and probiotic econorm as prescribed by the doctor. And the mainstay of treatment in diarrhea is to maintain hydration of the child. Give sips of oral rehydration solutions (ORS) such as Pedialyte to prevent dehydration. Monitor his hydration status by activity, skin turgor, urine output, thirst, and moisture of tongue and oral cavity. Usually it will take 3 to 5 days of time for loose stools to subside with treatment and maintain the hydration of the child by giving ORS during this period. Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know. Regards.

Hi Dr. XXXXXXX Thanks for the advice. Today after starting the dosage of Taxim-O, Econorm, 1/2 Histac evt and peditral (ors). We fed him with rice for lunch and now we observe some of the food as it is in his stool. (no-yellowish colour). Is this expected? Regards, XXXX

Brief Answer: It is expected one. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thank you for getting back. In diarrhea, there will be increased movement of intestines. So food particles may be seen in stools because of rapid movement of food in the gut before its complete digestion. This is an expected phenomenon in children with diarrhea. Continue the medication as prescribed by the doctor and be in follow up. Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know. Regards.

I had a complete hysterectomy by Davinci Robot on 8/25. I left the hospital on 8/26. I was back in the hospital on 10/01 with severe dehydration after diarrhea and vomiting. I was told I had an ileus . I was released on 10/06 and today 10/10 I am starting with diarrhea again. I do not have the nausea that I had before I was admitted to the hospital on 10/01. Could this diarrhea just be my body getting used to eating again? I was NPO for 4 days while in the hospital.

Hi i had a stomach infection with IBS symptoms in May for a couple of weeks, then i went on Probiotics for 4 wks and the symptoms got better. I was fine for the next 4 months back on usual diet , until when i travelled to Egypt , got another mild IBS like symptom. This time i was cautious and immediately after being on conscious diet for a couple of weeks and with Probiotics things are back on track. I consulted a GI specialist last time and he gave me Ciprofloxacin along with Flagyl and advised me to take them only if get extreme diarrhea . I am fine now, soon will be out of Probiotics in a couple of days and continue with normal diet, do you think i need to do the course in case i get any other mild attacks in the next 2 months ? I have also become a little sensitive to certain foods like cheese, mushrooms, very high fiber ?
