You're doing fine...: You have made excellent progress towards a more healthy lifestyle. Why do you think something may be going wrong? If you had high blood pressire it is now normal. What is your weight goal? Good idea to take a multivitamin, omega 3 oil and vitamin d=3 and b-12. Be sure you continue to follow up with your physician, continue your weight loss/exercise, and please don't get discouraged!

Call your doc: Could be viral, bacterial, other. History of travel, unsavory food intake, bleeding, sick contacts, other meds or medical conditions, antibiotic use in the last 2-3 months. Large volume or small volume diarrhea? Could even be inflammatory stuff like diverticulitis, appendicitis, etc.
Risk dehydration, even with oral rehydration fluid like pedialyte (otc)
call your doc.

A 39-year-old female asked:
How can I find out if my back problems are causing my detrusor instability? I have had three lumbar fusions. I started urinating 14 times a day after my last back surgery which was an alif. I am taking oxybutynin for frequency now but how can I be sure it

Urologist: It sounds like you are having urinary frequency, but not necessarily incontinence. The first thing should be a full evaluation by a urologist and I am sure that he will perform urodynamic tests. Additionally an evaluation by a neurologist may also be necessary accompanied by an EMG & ncs.
