Welcome to healthcare magic!
Surprised to go through the diseases you have, I think you are strong enough to handle them.
This diarrhea seems to be a sporadic episode of gastroenteritis, The motion can look grey when it is pretty loose and frequent because of the bile content which otherwise gets absorbed for most part.
Take simple OTC medicine Metronidazole 400mg thrice in a day.
and Cap Providac/Econorm twice a day
for three days.
If that does not help in three days, then you need to get a review with your physician.

I hope this advise would be helpful for you.

Still if you have any queries or doubts, please write me back,
I would be happy to solve them.

Wish you a great health!
