Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you.
What sort of operation that was?
Please enter the chat to proceed.
Is there any blood or mucus in stool?
Have you informed your doctor about that?
Thanks a lot for your input.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
No this is not a side effect of anaesthesia or your operation.
It is a coincidence that you have got it just after your operation. It can be a viral infection secondary to low immunity after operation.
You have mistakenly taken immodium because it keeps the waste matter inside and worsen the problem.
The point is what you should do now?
I will address your question in two aspects; what you can do yourself and what your doctor can do for you. As far as what you can do yourself is concerned in such situations you can take the following measures yourself.
1. OTC tab pepto Bismol twice daily.
2 More fiber in your diet. Psyllium husk can be good for it.
3. Drink Gatorade, as much as you can because fluid and electrolyte imbalance due to diarrhea can make you feel fatigued.
Avoid immodium at any cost.
Eat BRAT diet, it means banana, rice, apple sauce & toast.
No in this case, it makes the bulk of stool.
This is avoid loose stool.
This is supposed to avoid loose stool*
Lastly you should visit you doctor when possible at the earliest and get stool culture and stool R/E test.
You may need antibiotics for this problem.
But before that you can try my suggestions.
R/E means routine examination under microscope.
These stool tests are meant to find any abnormality like infection.
And please don't stress yourself because there is nothing serious and you are going to be ok soon.
Yes due to low immunity we can get ill after such operation and sometime we can get hospital acquired infections.
Don't worry, you will be ok soon.
Any question please? :)
Yes stress either physical or mental can delay the periods.
That is why your periods are late.
Once you get out of this illness, your periods will get normal again.
