    Suggest treatment for severe constipation and pain in the testicles

Posted on Mon, 14 Aug 2017 in Infections
Question: Hello
Elderly father has possible, lingering food poison issues from approximately 40-days OK. E-coli is suspect as sickness ensued following consumption of likely tainted ground beef.
Additionally, he is experiencing severe constipation and debilitating pain in his testicles.
Any help is much appreciated.

Brief Answer:
Best treatment is Cranberry juice that dislodges the bacteria.

Detailed Answer:
Hi welcome to health care magic, E-Coli infection is difficult to eradicate because the bacteria stick to intestinal and bladder wall and are difficult to dislodge.
Best treatment is Cranberry juice that dislodges the bacteria.
It will also handle his constipation.
Give him Cranberry juice 2 tsp three times a day in a glass of water.
Also give him a good Pre and Probiotic combination that should be available OTC.
For the testicular pain, he should get examined.
