bowel resection trouble 4 years later

my husband had bowel resection and a portion of his rectum removed about 4 years ago. He had no cancer only a large tumor.His bowel habits have not returned to any semblance of normal.Every day brings either constipation and severe gas pains or a very loose stool with him up to the bathroom every few minutes for 4 to 5 hours.He has had several colonoscopies and a barium enema results were normal. I have finally convinced him eliminate sugar and most carbohydrates from his diet(only 2 days not much change). Does anyone else have experience with this problem? We need help and dr.s don't think anything is wrong.
