Welcome to HCM

Sometimes your body system takes a longer time to recover. Since you have normal investigation reports you need not worry, do not take stress, try to relax and concentrate on recovery.

To have normal bowel movement keep yourself properly hydrated, try to resume to normal life, take fiber rich food and laxative with a glass of milk at bed time. Antacids will help the bloating feeling get better.

Take small quantities of food 3-4 times, take vitamin and mineral supplements. Avoid spicy oily food. Dizziness and low BP are due to weakness and low HB%, haemoglobin levels in your blood. You will recover soon, You need rest.

However if you feel too low do contact your treating doctor. Take care.
