Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... Hi there, my boyfriend has had a fever, vomiting and diarrhea, severe stomach cramps. He has had it since Thursday July 29th and it s almost been a week and he s still not back to normal. We thought he had the stomach flu. So on sunday August 1st we took him to emerengy. He was there for 2 days. His heart rate was up at 150 when it was suppose to be at 60-100. His blood pressure wasn t normal either. They took 3 blood tests, urine sample, xray test and a cat scan. Still they re were all fine. Dumb enough the docors couldn t even tell us what was the problem. They classified it as the stomach flu . I don t think it was especially when he has it for almost a week. He was also very dehydrated. They hooked an I.v. To him and injected almost 5 litres of fluids. His diarrhea wasn t normal, it was all runny and watery and had blood coming out. They got all the blood to stop. His heart rate and blood pressure to normal.He wasn t puking.He got told he could go home yesterday. But now he s having really bad cramps still. Is there any reason or anyone know why this si happening?? We need answers. He s been through so much already.Poor guy:(

For the last couple months my husband has had times where he has severe diarrhea and vomiting for short periods of time. A week ago he started it again, for 4 days. then my daughter and I both seemed to get a stomach virus for just 24 hours. My husband went two days then started vomiting and diarrhea again. It has been a week since this started, he hasn t vomited today, but he has diarrhea and constantly feels like he needs to have a bowel movement. He is also having pain in his abdomin and is belching a lot. Also, No appetite at all. What is wrong with him?

He has been given Gatorade water soup rice and other non greasy foods and yet this continues even though the stool is not as soft be he still goes to the bathroom frequently. He also passes gas a lot. Could this be more than Gastroenteritis?

My mom (76 y/o) is three weeks into recovery from partial colectomy. Underlying disease was diverticulitis. Recovery was going slowly but she s been back on normal diet and is followed by a visiting R.N. Wound site is healing normally. However, she developed intermittant low grade fever (100F) about four days ago. Also has extreme flatulence and bloating. Today, she s seeing small amounts of blood in her stool. Her surgeon does not seem concerned at all but told her to go to the E/R if she hemorrages. ?? Do these sound like typical post-operative symptoms for partial colectomy? I m not a doc, but this seems like it might be pointing to infection or gastroenteritis or something like that.
