I was operated 8 yrs ago for colon cancer. It was diagnosed in early stage. Had a resection. One foot of colon was removed 14mm from anus. No chemo was involved. I still have frequent stool syndrome (this is what I call it) going anywhere from two or three times a day up to twelve. A lot of times I'm OK other times I'm not. This does not run in a concurrent patern. Tried to link it to the food I eat. Then do a proscess of elimination as to the offensive food. This does not work. Has anyone with this condition come up with anything to help control the episodes. I've tried Imodium a few times but by the time I use it I'm near to the end of the cycle. Has anyone had sucess with laxatives? Would this become harmful do to overuse. Thank you for any concern toward my questions.
