Brief Answer:
IBS D(diarrhoea) with procto-sigmoditis/with Colitis.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Dear !! Thanks for your query to HCM.
I reviewed facts of your query in context to your health issues.

My Opinion-

In My opinion, in the given situation you seem to suffer from-IBS D(diarrhoea) with procto-sigmoditis/with Colitis.

Simple proctoscopy/ and or-Colonoscopy by GI endocopic Surgeon, would help you to resolve this issue.

Other causes like-piles / fissure in ano/ Ulcerative Colitis/ Diverticulitis,Polyposis coli needs to be ruled out in consults with GI Surgeon.

Other causes for such complaints need to be ruled out asap, with Consults from General Physician and Surgeon, if need be.

If after the treatment thereafter from GI endoscopic Surgeon is not giving relief to you.Initially just follow on suggested lines.

Test your stools for Cl.Difficile, which needs to be ruled out in your case.


Do's Suggested-

Avoid outside/street counter foods.
Be on Bland, preferably vegetarian home made / liquid diet with hygienic food cooking habits.
Non-spicy diet with less of solids initially, to be changed to solids gradually.

Antibiotics-like- Ciprofloxacin/ with Ornidazole/Metranidazole-combination- for 10 days
Cap Imodium 1 x 2 times a day x 5 days.
Cap Multivitamins with magnesium/ zinc 1 x 1 month
all above medicines need to be taken with script from your family doctor, please.
Youghurt and butter milk 2 times a day x 2-3 weeks
Tab Lactobacillus ds-1 x 2 times a day.(or Velgut could be continued)


Next appointment-

After 2 weeks to review treatment for existing left colitis with Gastric problem .

If you update more information/ details upon these suggestions, I would give further suggestions on medicines to correct your health issues.

Brief Answer:
IBS D(diarrhoea) with procto-sigmoditis/with Colitis.

Detailed Answer:
IBS D(diarrhoea) with procto-sigmoditis/with Colitis.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Dear !! Thanks for your updated query to HCM.
I reviewed facts of your query in context to your health issues.
On reviewing your query,you don't seem to have ulcerative colitis in your case.
Mesalamine-/ or Vegas Od-is a very specific drug, if the diarrhoea is accompanied with blood as it's ther in Ulcerative Colitis.

Dear, in the given situation, Vegas-Od is not recommended in your case,for above reasons.
Please follow do's suggested for 2 weeks.and keep Me updated on the progress of the disease.
Dear, its the diet and the drugs if need be,which needs to be concentrated in your case.If you change your diet as advised, I am sure that your colitis and diarrhoea would be controlled in 1-2 weeks time.
Dear, colitis of 7 yrs history is not a simple case to be treated.
Just follow My expert suggestions,which would correct defects and imbalance in your colonic and small bowel health.
Add Antispasmodics with antibiotics- as suggested in last reply.
Hence antibiotics / diet / anti-spasmodics-like Clinidium with chlordizepoxide,would take care of the bowel irritability and would control the IBS with diarrhoea and spastic sigmoid colon, which is giving left lower quadrant
pain in your case .
Take Velgut regularly.
but adding Yoghhurt / butter milk 2 times a day, is more beneficial,than any drug given.
And for all these reasons, I didn't comment anything about Vegas od addition.

Hope this reply would satisfy your query about Vegas od.

Next appointment-
After 2 weeks to review treatment for existing left colitis with Gastric problem .

If you update more information/ details upon these suggestions, I would give further suggestions on medicines to correct your health issues.

If need be, do update any health issue 24 x 7 by a direct question to ME, at following HCM link-http://doctor.healthcaremagic.com/Funnel?page=askDoctorDirectly&docId=70229
