My bowels have been gurgling a lot lately and I wake to watery discharge or flatulence.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Not much else. Just uncontrollable in the morning and possibly extremely loose if I go during the day.

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

Not really. Taking Armour Thyroid med and valsartan in the morning D in the evening

Hello I am Dr. Pennington. I am a colorectal surgeon.

How old are you? How long has this been going on? Have you taken any antibiotics lately?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
53, on and off for a few weeks. I was on 3-4 rounds of antibiotics last summer because of undiagnosed walking pneumonia

I am in the office this morning seeing patients here and there. We can try for a phone call around 12:30 EST if that will work?

My guess is dysbiosis. Remedy would be a good probiotic, but I am happy to talk to you about it.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
