I don't post frequently, but my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer with mets to the liver in August. She just completed her 8th round of chemo - (Folfox + Avastin) and it seems that after every 4th treatment she gets a severe case of diarrhea.
Her last treatmet was Jan 30 and she's had diarrhea and vomiting since then (over 2 weeks). Because of the diarrhea and vomiting her potassium level dropped so she received IV potassium this past Thursday & Friday and has started taking the potassium horse pills. Plus she's on Lomotil and Opium tencture for the diarrhea.
Has anyone experienced diarrhea for this long? Or is she setting some kind of record here?
Your feedback is appreciated.
