Dear lybrate-user, You can consult the surgeon for the change in antibiotic. With Cefalosporins loose motions are a common side effect that is attributed due to normal gut flora being disturb. I would suggest to keep her hydrated and home made Butter milk and curd to be given. Lactobacilli preparations are available OTC (Probiotics) like Yakult, they will also help.
