I had surgery on Feb 8th for sigmoid/rectol cancer. 1 of the 12 lymp nodes was cancerous so it was prescribed to have 5fu chemo along with radiation. This was a 28 day regiment. I am now finished and waiting for the healing to begin. At this point I will not mention the horror I experienced with the radiation all pointed to my pelvis and anus.
My main concern or question is how long to expect the diarrhea to stop! I really can't eat anything at all. The minute my hunger gets the best of me and I eat something I spend the next 6 hours having extreme diarrhea. It has come to the point where I can't make it in time to the toilet and I'm getting more and more depressed. I felt fine Feb. 7th.
Any suggestions of real food that might stay with me. I just don't want any more clear liquids.
