Since one week after christmas I have had Diarrhea daily. At least three times per day. I just had a colonoscopy and sonogram. My diagnosis was "irritation under the colon." Would you please explain and what kind of treatment will I have. Thank you
Hi,
You may have an inflammation int he colon such as due to diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, or an infection. I would suggest getting stool culture test done in addition to the tests you've already undergone. For treatment you may need antibiotics, anti-motility drugs such as Loperamide, fiber supplements etc. So please see your gastroenterologist soon for evaluation of your symptoms.
Regards.
