I I have frequent bowel movements especially in the mornings, I have short warning signs, so I sometimes don’t make it to the bathroom in time. I know I can take the cheap
Anti diarrheal over the counter medicine, but I try to hold off
And take it only on days when I have appts and on Sunday
Mornings for Church. I have to take it 3 hours in advance
It’s slow to work. I have taken nexium for close to 20 yrs. not sure if there’s a connection there? Any advice?

HI, I am been having a slightly bloated feeling in my stomach and pass stools three to four times a day....especially after having food. It has been like this for about 4 days now and i just started zanocin oz on the advice of a friend. Is that alright? i think it might be amoebiasis.... thanks. george

For about the past 4-8 weeks I have been having more bowel movements than usual. I almost never feel as if my bowels are empty. If I do feel emptied out, the feeling does not last long. I have no other symptoms that I find listed for colon cancer; no blood in my stool, no especially thin stool. I am 67 years old with a family history of colon cancer. My last colonoscopy was three years ago and, at the time, my gastroenterologist said that I needn t have another for 4-5 years. I will be contacting my gastroenterologist tomorrow, but I am very worried about the possibility of cancer. Thank you
