default
Posted on Tue, 10 May 2016
Question: I had been having stomach pain,bloating and indigestion till about two days ago.
Dr Kabra advisedvme veri well and I took Skifi OZ which seemed to settle the issue.
But last night 26 Feb after simple meals,I got stomacj pain and an urge to void and passed green liquid stool. This was midnight and I was travelling.,I do have diverticulitis but no major problem. I suspected gastroentritis as I am travelling.Maybe a repeat affair.
I am a 69 years old male otherwise in good health.
At night took Oz Tz, Immodium2 stat,redotil one,pantocid 40 mg one and Drotin for pain.
No fever. No Doctor nearby.Matters seem to be smoothed just now. Will consult doc when I reach civilization. Intend to continue Oz Tz and redotil one tds.
Assist.

Hi Dear, Thanks for your query to HCM!!
Read and Reviewed facts of your query !!

The current episode of stomach pain and urge to void and green stool passing,seems to be traveller's diarrhea.

I would suggest-reducing on-Drotin-which may add unwanted anti-spasmodic effects of Immodium and may add to complication of reccurrent diarrhea / Constipation.
Being known case of diverticulitis, control tantrums for Street/outside food.
Maintain enough fluid intake to cover bout of current diarrhea with duodenitis.
Change the Dietary Style-being frequent Traveller
I would suggest you to restrict to Bland Diet-
with Yogurt helpings with
Tab Zincovit-1 x 10 days - a vitamin supplement to cover increased needs.
Sticking to Bland diet for 3-5 days would reset your disturbed gut health.

Welcome for any further query in this regard.

Would love to help more if need be.
