Brief Answer:
drug indiced loose stools

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

It is common to have pain during defecation after hemorrhoid surgery. Cremaffin is usually given so that the stools are passed easily and without much straining.

Here is what I suggest to you

1. Reduce the dose of cremaffin. Only take it once you start feeling the stools are hard and difficult to pass
2. Continue to take Tab L-Cin C
3. Drink plenty of water. About 8 glasses per day
4. Eat two bananas to free passage of stools. Adding fibre to your diet in the form of green leafy vegetables and fruits will help as well

Do not worry about the stitches, your loose stools will not dislodge it or cause delayed healing

I hope I was of help

If you have any further queries please get back to me

I wish you good health and a speedy recovery

I am 45 years old, for the past 5 years I usually get a case of prostatitis once per year. Just finishing up a round of anti-biotics (levaquin) and my urologist tried a new bph medicine with me (rapaflow). Within 3-4 days of the meds, my symptoms all but left but after a week I experienced diarrhea (witch lasted almost 2 weeks) and also noticed little or now semen in ejaculations. Also, after bowel movements, over the last 4 days, I find myself having to sit and wait for small amounts of urine to pass. No matter how long I wait, I usually find I leak a few drips shortly afterward. Any comments / advice would be appreciated

I've been diagnosed with streptococcus virdan. I've taken several medications such as levaquin, cipro, bactrim, doxycline and many more. The levaquin started working but I quit taking it because I felt better and now I've been having this problem for six years due to the fact I stopped taking my medication. About a year ago, a doctor did a semen culture and I was positive for virdan. He prescribed me penicillin and of course it didn't do anything. Do you have any suggestions of what I need to do because this has been and ongoing process forever
