Re: Colon Cancer questions?

If this person is diagnosed with colon cancer and is having diarrhea severe enough that he cannot retain fluids I would highly suggest speaking to his doctor. They will know if it is a symptom of his treatment or not, and how to go about treating it. If it is a symptom of his treatment it is likely over the counter medicine will work, but always check with his specialist first. Hope this helps.
