    Occult Test Ordered

    Past couple of years I've had loose stool; diet is not great and lots of coffee. I've had blood engrained in pieces of my stool.. typically 1 piece out of the many in the bowl. It is fresh blood.. no pain. The clinic doctor has me doing an occult blood test from 3 separate stools. He assures me itll find blood if it is there. My question is: if I only have blood in my stool

    Intestinal pain/gas after antibiotics

She has tried Gluten free, cutting out dairy and many, many, other things. One thing we seem to be noticing, is a negative affect after stopping a course of antibiotics. For example, she had major jaw surgeries X4 over the past few months. They had her automatically start a course of antibiotics after the surgeries....

I can’t take any medication that’s a stimulant because have to run to the bathroom more often than normal when I take these types of medications. Has anyone....
