As a rule Doctor my Dad loathes medicine so all he takes is co-amilofruse, lansoprasole and low dose aspirin. When he had the back pain he was given co-codamol and then it was stopped due to its causing constipation.
Thank you Helen
Just let me clarify
Your two main questions are
1)should he be released with all this extra fluid?
2)what should be done about lack of bowel movements and eating?
Yes that is correct
