HI
Well come to HCM
In my opinion the chances of intestinal infection is very likely and for this I would suggest to have a Tab Metronidazole 400 mg twice in day for five days, every would be fine with this drug, forget about the constipation because this is not the constipation, hope this helps.
I find this answer helpful
