Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My mother, who is 45 years old, has ulcers in the sigmoid colon for the last 15 years. The problem got reduced in the past two years, but, it started again now. She is having white sticky stools and pain in the left lower abdomen. She is also facing trouble with passing urine. She consulted a local doctor and used the medicines of urinary tract infection. Since then, the condition got worse. She is taking Pre pro, Traxol 200 mg, Menopace, EstroG, Spasmodart and Rantac D. Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com. The occurrence of white sticky bowel movements can be attributed to various factors, but considering your mother's medical history, it's highly likely due to severe inflammation of the intestine. The antibiotics used for treating her urinary tract infection might have triggered a flare-up of her previously diagnosed ulcerative colitis. It's advisable for her to discontinue that particular antibiotic. I recommend revisiting her doctor to switch to an alternative antibiotic based on the urine analysis results. Additionally, she may benefit from a probiotic to counter antibiotic-related diarrhea. Encourage her to opt for smaller, healthier meals, and advise her to steer clear of coffee and carbonated beverages. Continuing her prescribed medications for colon ulcer management is also crucial.
