Welcome to Doctors Spring Forum.
Although I am not able to understand the meaning of "Farting" yet with the available described
details, there appears to be high possibility of small intestinal diarrhea or viral
As such virus induced gastroenteritis generally involves small intestine.
Although its very difficult to confirm the cause of gastroenteritis (whether viral or
bacterial); excessive flatulence with foul smelly stool suggests the diagnosis.
Improvement in your symptoms with use of antibiotic also confirms the diagnosis.
There also appears to be decreased gastrointestinal immune system as you are getting abdominal
disturbances on regular basis.
As such there appears to be no correlation between present symptoms and colon cancer. Colon
cancer is associated with weight loss, generalized malaise, blood in stools, intestinal
obstruction. Colon cancer can not be treated with antibiotic use.
Although your treatment has continued for a long period but you have taken antibiotic course
for very short duration in single episode (means for 2-3 days) which is very short for
correction of your problem.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ gastroenterologist and should go for
thorough check up.
You should go for complete blood count, serum amylase and lipase, blood sugar fasting and
postprandial, thyroid function test, liver function test, ultrasound imaging of abdomen.
You should take complete antibiotic course, probiotics, rifaximin for 5-7 days.
You should also take potassium rich diet such as juices, banana, coconut water for maintaining
Avoid milk and all milk related products for a period of 5-7 days.
Let me know your other query if you have,
Get well soon,
