Hi, I have chronic soft stool movements (4-8 times a day) and was given heavy intravenous antibiotics aside from my usual dosage of meds as a CIDP patient while hospitalized for 8 days. M endoscopy and colonoscopy revealed a carcinoid tumor in my lower right colon. It is suspected tis is the cause of my frequent bowel movements of greenish brown color until now.
Recent stool exams say NO PARASITES, YEAST CELLS, MANY
Blood Count: Eosinophils percentage is 25.8 which appears too high to the RV of 0-4
Please help what best to ask my Doctors as am tired of taking so many medicines! thank you.

Hi my 2 yr old has had a fever for 2 days now. Last night I gave him a dose of motrin at 6 pm. At 9:30 pm his fever spiked to 104.2 and still was not time to give him another dose until 12am so I put him into the bathtub. I kept him in there for 30 minutes and it rose to 104.5, I called the doctor on call and he told me to go ahead and give him another dose of motrin but this time instead of the 1 tsp (cause hes 28lbs) to give him 1 and 1/4 tsp right away. In another half an hr it dropped to 103.8. All night it went up and down from 103 to 104 never going below 103. This morning at 7 was his next dose of tylenol ( I rotate between the 2) and his temp went down to 100.4 but now its on the rise again at 102.5 but now he just had a bowel movement of all black. No diahreah but it was very skinny and looked softer then it usually would. My question is is there anything that is going around right now that I should be worried about? Mind you he has had no other symptoms at all. Please help! My sons pedi is out of the country right now and on vacation and I dont really care for the doctor on call from previous reasons.

Hi i went to the er last week 10/27/2010 for blood after bowel movement on paper and in toilet, they did a vaginal exam ??? diagnosed me with a uti and vagintitus prescribed keflex and flagyl. I dont have insurance so I am saving to pay for these medications , but since the er visit I have been randomly vomiting five times total no real pattern and woke up one morning with a sore swollen lymph node in my elbow area near crik of left arm which is still swollen not extrelmly hard or soft more in between but not too sore now, two days later I had one below left ear swell up and it is sore and still there, this one not extremly hard. I also have had for a month now maybe two what I have assumed to be flea bites because we just got a dog and ive seen the fleas on me and I am highly allergic but either i keep getting bitten or it is a rash spread out in splotches over body mostly on lower legs feet and ankles. Can a uti untreated or vagintitus cause all of this or would you think there is more to it, at er they tested mr for gonorrea and chlamedia both were neg took urine, and blood, called and said two days later the blood test were fine. If you do think it is all caused by uti or vagintitus will the meds take care of everything?

Hello: I have quite a concern and I will be going to the general doctor tomorrow for the physical examination. First a little about me, I am a 28 year old male. I am currently a 2nd year medical student in guadalajara but live in the United States. For about the past three weeks I ve noticed my stool has become progressively softer (for every single stool). Initially the smell and color was normal. For the past two days however the stool has become yellowish. What brings me concern was that my last stool passed was very soft, a darker yellow color, smelly, and much of the food I had eaten the night before was not digested. I have checked my blood pressure and it is normal. Heart rate is 70. No fever, or general feeling of malaise. No pain at all. No significant weight loss or fatigue. I ve had fellow students check for fluid wave and there is some movement on the other side but it s not a very fluid movement (is the opposite side not supposed to move AT ALL? Or can it move a little but should not be liquid movement?). Currently I am taking a larger does of Ibuprofen prescribed by a doctor here because about three weeks ago a painless non-inflamed lump was felt underneath the skin slightly anterior to the angle of the mandible. I have been taking the Ibuprofen for about 5 days and the lump has not gone away. In the past (5 years ago) I have had an H. Pylori infection with a subsequent ulcer in the duodenum. Only medication was used to treat the infection/ulcer. No followup was done afterwards. Beginning around the same time as the ulcer I have had recurrent bouts of hemorrhoids. Blood could be seen on wiping. Currently this is happening as well. About 8 years ago I suffered from a pneumonia but do not remember if it was viral or bacterial. I ve also had a pretty long history of right sided feeling in my abdomen. I would say the feeling is located directly on the line that would separate the upper and lower quadrant, slightly above the umbilicus. The feeling was never painful. I know the doctor I visit tomorrow will get to do the necessary physical tests to see if there is any significant pathology but I need to hear what other things it could be. The doctors here usually shoo us away because they think we are too young to get anything serious or they assume that just because we read a chapter in pathology we automatically think we suffer every disease in the textbook. Anyway, I know living in Mexico currently will expose me to certain bugs. However the course of those from what I know would not cause a 3 week history of progressively looser stools and the yellowness/malabsorption for the past two days. Any suggestions/comments of what it may be is more than welcome.
