Thanks for the question and coming on Just Answer. I would like to have few important details. What are your symptoms right now?
black tar-colored stools; pencil thin stools. slight diarhrea. Associate sligt hip pain beling treated with aleave
Thanks for the details. I would like to say that first of all AVOID any pain killers now. It is important to note that symptoms can only get treated after treating the cause. I will suggest to take fiber supplement such as Metamucil available OTC and take probiotics in diet. You should also take healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Your doctor can only prescribe you Tab. Nexium 40mg one tablet daily which will be helpful. I will suggest to ask your doctor for early colonoscopy because of serious symptoms. Drink plenty of fluids and avoid spicy or junk food.If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don't hesitate to ask!Please remember to only rate my answer when you are satisfied.
