Hello! A year ago my father was diagnosed with colon cancer. The surgery resulted in taking out a large portion of his colon and rerouting the remaining colon to his side, resulting in a permanent colostomy. Since then he has gone through chemo and radiation. His treatments are now over; however, he is so weak and has a hard time walking due to this weakness. Does anyone know of anything he can take to increase his energy level? Also, at night is when he stays awake largely due to his stool emptying. Numerous times he has awaken and his bag has burst. Does anyone know what he can possibly do? Please help!
