What are the treatments for loose motion and vomiting?

I am 70 years old and started having liquid stools and during the nite I had to run to the bathroom. Had liquid yellow stools and about 4 inches of watery GREY vomit in the bottom of a 8x10 bowl. It was very forceful when it occurred. 5 or 6 times in a row. Now throat feels like I could throw up constantly and have only had a few soda crackers. suggestions?

General Surgeon 's  Response

After reading your query thoroughly, I have come to the following suggestions.

* The issue is seemingly related to intestine infection through some sort of bacteria or viral infection as it is of sudden onset of short duration.

* Drinking soda can be problematic in this instance, so kindly follow some useful tips as

- intake of antiemetic as ondansetron (through the prescription of your PCP), PPI as omeprazole with sips of water on an empty stomach

- Probiotics with lactobacillus or else

- home available fresh yoghurt serves best

- bland vegan diet till recovery

- discuss the need for an antibiotic with your primary health care provider to cover the infection sooner.

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

Take care
