Hello Del,

My name is***** and I will help you.

Poor Mr Bigglesworth! Did the diarrhea begin suddenly or over a period of a few days/

Is it totally thin liquid or is it loose stool?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 year ago.

Was he diagnosed with giardia or another intestinal bug? Metronidazole is treatment for those kinds of problems.

Does he vomit?

Is he losing weight?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 year ago.

After you answer these questions I will make some recommendations to help Mr Bigglesworth. We definitely want him to be comfortable over the holidays.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 year ago.

It is late Del and I must go to bed. But I will call in the morning. I live in Hawaii so my morning will probably be later than yours.

But I really want to help you and Mr Bigglesworth.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 year ago.

Good morning Del,

How is Mr Biggleworth this morning? Wouldn't it be wonderful if his diarrhea just stopped?

I do have some suggestions that might help in the future.

Hope to hear from you.

Dr Marta
