Tmi: loose yellow stools

I'm nearly 5w postop. Last week I had severe constipation followed ny 2 straight days of loose yellow bm...mostly diarrhea. It went away, so I thought it was a virus. Now, a week later the same thing.

Last week called the nurse she said could be virus. But now wonder if it could be related to surgery. Also, I'm losing weight because I'm so nauseated. I haven't taken any pain meds in 2 days so I dont think that's the cause. Ugh. I'm so ready to feel better.

Re: Tmi: loose yellow stools

Hi there! I don't think it would be related to surgery after this amount of time. Did you ask the nurse when you called if they thought it was related? My suggestion would be to try to keep your fluids up and don't hesitate to call them back with your concerns and questions. Good luck and hope it goes away soon!

You need to call your family doctor & get an appointment. It could very possibly be c. diff. I was treated for this with antibiotics. After taking the meds, I feel 100% better as far as the diarrhea. It's under control & I actually can keep food in my system.
C. Diff is common in people who have had surgery. Especially when given antibiotics. I hope this helps you!!

This sounds exactly what I'm going thru since I had to be readmitted due to infection and was on IV antibiotics for 5 days.

I'm seeing the dr today. I hope relief is on the way. I don't know how much longer I can feel this bad!!
