Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.

Most likely you are suffering from Gastroenteritis.Also commonly referred to as infectious diarrhoea, is a gastric disorder. The gastrointestinal tract, which comprises of the small intestine and stomach gets inflamed.It is marked by diarrhoea,vomiting and nausea.Depending on the cause, viral enteritis symptoms may appear within one to three days after you're infected and can range from mild to severe. Symptoms usually last just a day or two, but occasionally they may persist as long as 10 days.

Treatment-
Anti-diarrhoeal medication (such as loperamide(imodium) upto 16 mg a day) ,Its OTC.
Take 5 days antibiotic and anti protozoal course.
Tab Ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice a day(9a.m-9 p.m)
Tab Metronidazole 400 mg twice daily(9a.m-9p.m)
Tab Zofran 4mg twice(anti emetic) OTC
you would start feeling much better after single dose. Ciprofloxacin and metronidazole are antibiotics and you may need a prescription for them

Drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration–You need to drink more than usual to replace the fluids lost from vomiting nauseaand diarrhoea. Cleaner water is best, but you could also try fruit juice and soup.
Get plenty of rest.

If you feel like eating, try small amounts of plain foods, such as soup, rice, pasta and bread.
Use special rehydration drinks made from sachets electral solution to maintain depleted electrolyte levels in serum.Depletion of electrolyte results in weekness.


Brief Answer:
Recurrent infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again,

Take complete 5 days therapy dear patient.
Don't worry you would start feeling much better in a day.
Take a probiotic like VSL#3 once daily also.It helps in improving overall digestion.
However cause of the relapses after shower can't be explained(Human body is different and every individual has different presentation).

Follow up after 3 days

I recently had a colonoscopy and a endoscopy done, the colon is fine, but the dr found that in my biospy of my stomach red patches through out my stomach. He says that he hasnt seen this very often and doesnt know what it is or what its caused from. Now I have to go through small bowel capsule endoscopy to see if its threw out my small intestine . I have celiac sprue also for 8 years now and have lost alot of weight recently and also have diahreaa every day. I also have craping in pain in the middle of my belly along with bloating and nausea. Im worried that he does not know what this is, and have not been able to find anything on the internet about red patches. I seen the pictures and they are not ulcers, they are not bleeding the are really small and there is alot of them. any Idea of what this could be/

I had a robotic assist hysterectomy with a vaginal uterine removal done 6 days ago. Large fibroids interiorly and exteriorily as well as adenomyosis . I have deep strong bowel pain as the stool moves through part of the small intestine and then several hours later as it reaches the distal end of the descending colon and makes the turn to the rectum. No trouble passing stool nor constipation a few minutes later. Urge to defecate is fine and amount of stool is low normal. Is pain due to bruising of intestines? Will this pass soon? It almost feels as if the intestines are deeply bruised and muscle motion hurts as it passes through the bruised area. This is not a small pain. These are deep and strong pain waves. I have a high pain tolerance so I know it really hurts.

I have been suffering with too many bowel movements for some time. I have had a large bowel procedure which showed diveritular disease. I have since had a small bowel meal and await results. I am still bleeding periodically from the back passage, bright red blood and have what feels like a large protrusion below my chest but above my belly button which is evident when getting out of bed.

I can not go to the bathroom. I have tried everything from laxatives, senna tea, vegetables, fruit, magnesium citrate , fiber capsule and drinks. I constantly feel it swirrling in my stomach . Even with the magnesium citrate my stomach just rumbles and if I m really luck a small bowel movement will happen not not a lot. My stomach hurts all the time, I m bloated and uncomfortable. This has been going on for several months now. What else can I try?
