Cancer: Colon board

My Dad is 71 years old and has colon cancer. He had surgery and they also have found 4 lymph nodes infected out of 11. He is on chemo - eloxatin. He is having SEVERE diarrhea...has taken immodium to no avail. They also tried him on lomotrill - also doing no good. Last night, he spent the evening on the bathroom floor...and eventually fell asleep there. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE ADVISE SOMETHING TO HELP HIM BEFORE HE ENDS UP IN THE HOSPITAL FROM DEHYDRATION? My mother has been giving him plenty of electrolytes. He went through 18 depends from 3PM yesterday until he decided to camp out in the bathroom...and those 18 times didn't include the times he actually made it there...PLEASE, WE NEED TO HELP HIM!!!1
