Customer Question

I am a 78 yr.old lady with MS. I have not had a hysterectomy, but after bad back surgery in Feb.2014 causing a flair in my MS, I have been advised not to have any more surgery. I have days when I feel like my whole rectum is going to drop out. It usually follows a bout with uncontrollable diahrrea which lasts all day.
I have had MS since1983, but it was in total remission until my husband died in 2012. I had three healthy children, ages 56, 53,& 48. No miscarriages.
Can you advise me why I have this very uncomfortable feeing and if I can relieve it?

Dear customer,

What investigations were done to diagnose the cause for your diarrhea? Do you have any other symptoms such as abdominal pain or cramping? How is the stool consistency and color? What medications do you take?
