Hi

Your friend is suffering from stage 4 cervical cancer.

As her urine is orange i would advise her to do routine urine test and urine culture sensitivity test.

If any infection is found in the urine report then it has to be treated with sensitive antibiotics.

If blood is found in urine then CT scan of lower abdomen has to be done.

She also has to take tranexamic acid tablet 500 mg twice daily after food for 3 days to stop her bleeding.

As she is having history of gastroenteritis i would advise her to take proton pump inhibitor group of drugs before breakfast once daily with her doctors advise.

Warm Regards

DR DE
