Hello,

Sticky stools may be due to post radiation induced irritation of mucosa or it may be due to dysentery or pruritis or colitis. Get a stool examination and microscopy.

Use tablet Sporulac thrice a day for five days. tablet Ofloxacine and Ornidazole twice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly. Take care.

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

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu , Internal Medicine Specialist
