A week before Christmas I had a colonoscopy and nothing has been right since(Monday). I had liquid stool until the end of Wednesday with the most incredible abdominal cramps that make you bend in half. Thursday I am down to just the cramps. By Friday I had an okay day. It was relief for what was to come. Saturday - Sunday - Monday slowly things got worse and worse, the cramps returned, but no bowel movements. The addition were urine output increase. By Monday (also known as Christmas) I had 30 trips to the bathroom by 8pm. I went to the ER. There I found out I had a UTI and a bowel obstruction. They gave me a injection which gave me an allergic reaction for stomach upset. NO pain medicine until I repeatedlly asked. Then sent me home with antibiotics, after the xray and urinalyisis. I saw my PCP on Thursday. He believes the UTI may now be a Kidney infection and ordered a different antibiotic, but was concerned about diarrhea. He said stop taking them if it occurs. I have had no antibiotic since yesterday, Sunday AM. Yet, Today, Monday, I have soiled myself on more then one occassion.

Can you help?
