The medication you took does not cause any such side effects. But if you still feel uneasy and not comfortable taking these medicines, you may stop taking them. Most of then are vitamin b group vitamins and do to remain in body for more than 3-4 days.

My cousin is suffering from severe cellulitis. Symptoms blood with stool and going to stool 5-8 time.

MBBS, MS - General Surgery
General Surgeon, Hyderabad
Cellulitis is a medical term, if used by non medical person it may or may not suggest it as cellulitis. Considering he is right implies he has infection as the history is inconclusive i'm unaware if he is under treatment or not, if under treatment he has not been diagnosed correctly and is on wrong antibiotics which might have caused him to have blood in stools and passing frequently, drug induced. No history of fever, at times gram negative septicemia behaves like that. My advice is that patient should be hospitalized immediately and thoroughly investigated & treated.

Gastroenterologist, Bangalore
Ulcerative colitis This condition is usually well controlled with medical line of treatment. There may be flare ups, which may require more dosage of medicines or enema to control the symptoms. Suggest review of the medical records with a Gastroenterologist to make sure colonoscopy biopsies are confirmatory of ulcerative colitis. Some patients require surgery if medical line of treatment is not responding. The remedy is to regularly continue mesacol or medicines prescribed by a specialist. Take care.

It will be very difficult for you to analyse a use abdomen report. Prostate 21.1 ml means the volume of the prostate size. It is a bit enlarged but nothing to worry about as your residual volume is post urination is only 20.4 ml. As far as the calculi in gall bladder, the size is not mentioned. But it can cause problem. Should get it operated of it is causing pain.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Chronic constipation is often the lead cause behind ulcerative colitis. You definitely do need to streamline your diet which should mostly comprise of softly cooked or steamed vegetables with less of salt, oil, ghee, spices etc all. Preferably, use olive oil for cooking. The more bland the diet is, easily digestible will it be and the better it will be for your health/ recovery. Also, do consume well ripened fruits especially papaya & banana. Home made buttermilk (to which a pinch of fresh turmeric is added) and tender coconut water too are immensely valuable in this condition. Also consume vegetables like cabbage, carrot, papaya, beet, spinach and fruits like apple that can be of help. Do take care to avoid citrus fruits as it may exacerbate your colitis issue. Flesh foods, tea, coffee, sweets, cakes, pastries, greasy, oily, salty, spicy foods including fast foods are best avoided too. Fresh cold water fish, 3 times bi-weekly, helps. Do take plenty of water daily, and ensure that you get enough of bed rest, avoiding stress/ strain/ anxieties. Also, take care not to strain while passing stools. A light abdominal massage on a regular basis also helps. In addition to the above-mentioned natural guidelines, you can take 'Triphala Churna' (Patanjali) - 1/2 tsp daily with warm water, preferably after dinner, for next 1 month. Also, consuming 'Bael Churna' (Patanjali) - 1/2 tsp daily with warm water, post lunch, for next 1 month helps remove chronic constipation, if any and help feel better. Being a heart patient, with pacemaker (PPI ?), the above-mentioned advisory is subject to your cardiologist's/ endocrinologist's concurrence. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,
