This is Dr. David
I am sorry you are had this cold and viral symptoms.
this can often worsen GI symptoms, especially if you have had prior colon surgery.
you do need to see a doctor
there are medications which could help calm down your bowels.
medications like Pepto Bismal can help
also there are medications your doctors can give you such as dicyclomine, or hyoscyamine or Donnatal which can calm down bowel spasms.
that is good your bowels are formed and you are eating a more bland diet.
are you on IBS medications at this point?
