Brief Answer:
get immediate evaluation and treatment in ER.

Detailed Answer:

I have gone through your medical history carefully and am sorry for the situation you are in.

Having diarrhea with blood persisting since April 20 in your case should get immediate evaluation and treatment in ER.

Although you have taken oral antibiotics, you might need intravenous treatment (antibiotics ) and fluids.

The results of your stool analysis is required for further evaluation.

Wish fast recovery!
