Hi everyone,
two years back I was diagnosed with UTI and the doc prescribed an antibiotic, Augumentin. The only thing I remember is that the UTI was resolved leaving me afterwards with a complication. I had diarrhea while taking the antibiotics, thought it is the ADR n ignored it though it’s urgency to go to the rest room was abnormally high. Even after finishing the regimen the diarrhoea didn’t go away so I went back to the same doc. He said I was having Amoeba n prescribed metrondazole. Again didn’t work. I thought I should see another physician n did but didn’t help. He did every kind of lab tests n told me I was ok…probably I’m stressed. I told myself I was OK for 6 months n what happened? I lost 7 kg plus no progress with the stool except this time it is foamy, loose, and jelly thing sometimes with bright red color blood on it. It gets worse if I have to spend a lot of time awake or if I skip meal. Then last year I went to a third doc who sent me back home with a steroid claiming my intestinal wall might have degraded. He recommended colonoscopy. Nothing helped. A month back I went to a known gastroenterologist n all he suspected was an infection so prescribed an antibiotic with tinindazole. Until the antibiotics regimen is finished I had a normal stool but immediately after I finished the old thing re-emerged. These days it’s even worse I’m experiencing yellowish bitter thing coming up from my stomach. The loose, foamy, large mass stool hasn’t gone away and I do feel ***l of pain at the center of my tummy after defecation. I sometimes wonder which part of the food I ate goes to the circulation since it is a huge mass that goes out. Could anyone please help? At first when taking the augumentin, I was continuously drinking milk shake (didn’t know I shouldn’t). Could this whole trouble be related to the reaction of the milk with the antibiotics? What do u recommend?
Thanks in advance
