Topic: Slowed Peristalsis
It seems to be never ending. I was wondering if anyone has ever had a problem with constipation and their chemo? 17 or 18 cycles of GemOx have caused significant back up. My stool is hardened and tiny. I am distended a lot of the time. And cannot seem to gain any weight. Whatever I eat just sits in my stomach. This has been accompanied by much nausea which has now thankfully subsided.
Has anyone else experienced this? It's frustrating because I'd like to be in good shape for when I start chemo again. I have taken lomotil for the constipation but it does not seem to help. My stools remain hardened and tiny.
Any way around this?
