Frequent motions and gas

I had low in-ano fistula and had undergone a fistulectomy a couple of years ago. The fistula has been successfully removed. However, I have been experiencing problems with my digestive system ever since. I have to make frequent visits to the loo, especially after taking meals. Also, I mostly have semi-solid stools with undigested food particles in them. The stools are sometimes dark black in color. I am also facing gas problems increasingly these days with a bloated feeling. In addition I tend to have a dry mouth especially after waking up in the morning. I am low on energy and get easily tired. My body weight has been constant around 73-75 kg. Kindly suggest remedies/any specific tests I should undergo for proper diagnosis.

Hi there I understand your concern... It may be ibs...Diagnosis is very important in irritable bowel syndrome...you will need certain investigations to rule out other causes...investigations are ultrasound abdomen,liver function test,blood tests like complete heamogram,stool examination etc... There is no specific treatment of this disease. It can be controlled by altering diet pattern,psychological therapy and medicines. You can take course of antibiotics containing Ofloxacin and Ornidazole twice daily for five days...Consult nearest gastroenterologist they will do the needful.
