General Surgeon 's  Response
Nothing to worry.
Diarrhoea in your case is due to Amoxycillin drug.It should subside once you stop the drug.
If the diarrhoea is still continuing,Take a Pre and Probiotic capsule and anti diarrheal drugs with the advice of your doctor.
If there is no response,Go for Colonoscopy examination.
Good luck.

General Surgeon Dr. Grzegorz Stanko's  Response

Thank you for the query.

The reason of such symptoms can be severe intestinal infection (caused by amoxycyllin), bowel partial obstruction due to inflammatory bowel disease, fistula between small and large intestine, pancreas disease or even a cancer.
You can try a Rifaximine 400 mg 3x1 for 7 days treatment (should be prescribed by your doctor) and if it wont help, than you should have some tests. Full blood work, liver tests, amylase, bilirubin should be performed. Abdominal CT with oral contrast should be done next and if still no findings, colonoscopy should be performed.

Hope this will help.
