Customer Question
I have sudden onset...

I have sudden onset, non solid faecal incontience- and am going camping-can you advise how to manage this?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No I haven't, not a problem normally and am an overseas visitor to Australia. This has not happened before. My medications are over the counter vitamin -multivatamin, vitamin calcium, Vitamin D and magnesium citrate for muscle cramps, and an occasional sleeping tablet Hydroxyzine HCL 25mg -currently half a tablet a night whilst on holidays -about 6 night straight.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Please refer to my previous message.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No thank you - normally healthy

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
