Hello doctor,

Since last one year, I am having loose stools with a lot of gas released from the anus. Motion is not cleared fully. There is a burning sensation in stomach and somewhere in the intestines. There is a huge rambling in the stomach, especially in the evening hours. The doctor has advised taking Normaxin RT, Enbios, Rabicip D SR for two weeks. The condition improves but recurs as the course is over.

Eight years ago, I was diagnosed via a colonoscopy to have terminal ileum erosion with chronic non-specific inflammatory substances. I was suspected to have IBD, IBS, Crohn's. I had the course of Mesacol, Budez CR intermittently for nearly three years. The condition significantly improved and I consumed Bifilac capsule for some time. Is my current problem connected to the old problem?. Please suggest a suitable course of treatment.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The present symptoms look more likely due to constipation.

I suggest you follow these measures:

  • Avoid constipating foods like maize-based foods, junk foods, baked ones etc.
  • Keep yourself well hydrated with two to three liters of water a day in various forms.
  • Have a diet rich in vegetables and fibers.

Regarding the previous issue, it is always better to get an imaging of the abdomen. An ultrasound or a CECT (high-dose contrast-enhanced computed tomography) to be done.

Moreover, considering your age and previous issue, a follow-up colonoscopy is warranted.

Follow up as needed.

Thank you doctor,

How do I treat constipation on a long-term basis? How often can I take PAN 40 mg kind of medicine to subside immediate symptoms? The recent USG of the abdomen shows little fatty liver with no other problem.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Diet modification and avoiding precipitating foods is the best method.

You can use mild laxatives like lactulose if needed when you notice stools becoming hard.

Pantoprazole can be used to relieve the burning pain.

It can be used for five to seven days when you experience the symptoms.

Avoid long-term usage.
