Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* The abdomen pain after food relates to intestine infection through some sort of bacteria or virus which can be ingested via food stuff or liquids.
* My recommendations for better recovery

- Consume more liquids.
- Prefer organic fresh fruits, easily digestible food stuffs.
- Needs antibiotic support for GI specific action as metronidazole or else for better outcome ( which requires prescription of your Doc ).
- Avoid spices, junk foods, dairy fat.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I had ulcerative Colitis many years ago. In june this year i had a tummy bug that was going round, only lasted 1 day. After that i began getting abdominal pain so got Predsol enimas from my doctor, these helped. Now, whenever i spend a penny, i always have leakage from the back passage. What could have happened. I am 64yrs old and otherwise in good health.
