Can Strep cause Lower Abdominal Bloating, Tender Sides, Constipation, Random Cough and loss of appetite? I was tested Positive for Strep.

If you are taking antibiotics, then it's possible your GI symptoms are related to this.

Pain after Surgery: You don't say what surgery you had or when, and you didn't mention what your other medical problems are. It sounds to me like you should be seen by a doctor.

To be safe, I think you should call the surgeon or go to the emergency room if that is your only choice. ...Read more
