Hi,
How is your father? Irritable bowel syndrome, a functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorder,  may present with abdominal pain or discomfort, along with diarrhea, constipation, or both. His loose stools may be attributed to this but may still warrant further evaluation especially if there is fever also. Though there is no cure for IBS, the symptoms can be treated with a combination of changes in eating, diet, and nutrition medications. If these persist, it is best that you inform his doctor about this for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
