Hi, it appears that she is scared of the fact that her colon is removed, and feeling depressed. more over the constitution of the G.I tract is also disturbed.
I to my patient with such symptoms prescribe lactic acid bacilli, ranitidine300 OD, and some enzyme preparation.
I also advise you to give her fresh juice of palatable vegetables like tomato, carrot, and beet root alone or in combination. Thank you.
