Re: Does anyone have diarrhea since a colon resection?
I am sorry to hear that you are not feeling a good as you would like to. I am surprised that nothing helps the diarrhoea. My husband's one side effect of surgery, chemo and radiotherapy is an increase in the number of bowel movements. It is apparently normal but that is not particularly reassuring to the person who has this terrible urgency at times, especially if you are in the middle of a meeting! It does not seem to be related to any particular food or drink so cannot be controlled by diet. He is trying Metamucil now ....very carefully, as the problem is the last thing you want is to take something that will cause a blockage! Cannot win really!
You are in your early days though and things will get better as time goes by.
