My father was diagonosed with E.C. in November 2005. He had 2 cycles of chemo and surgery on Jan 2nd 2006. He is recovering well from surgery . He was diagonosed with T3N3. However he has had severe trouble with constipation and hard stool. Between his 2 chemo cycles he had to be hospitalized for that problem and required manual evacuation and retention anemas. The doctors said it was the chemo drugs and reduction in food intake at that time which was causing that. But even now, post operation he is having the same trouble. This has overtaken his life now. The latest sonography done showed no spread in liver or kidneys. The last C.T. scan done just prior to surgery also showed no spread in any part. I would like to know if anyone has had similar trouble?
