This is not a pleasant subject but I have sporadic changes with stool throughout a week. Stool is absolutely normal, then changes to not being formed, then changes to a form of diarrhea. Other than that, I feel great. I asked radiation oncologist and she said that is not a side effect to the breast being radiated. I told her more than once since I continued to have the problem. I discussed this with my primary care doctor who said to observe it a little longer, then call him. I am ready to call him back but before I do, I want to know if anyone else has ever experienced this. (Had a colonoscopy in July 2009 - normal.)
Yesterday I saw a post on constipation but it was related to chemo. That post made me think to do this post.
Has anyone had what I best describe as both normal and irregular stools throughout a week?. It's a yo-yo. Radiation was finished on January 18 (31 treatments). First actual diarrhea started January 6.
I’m the one whose buttocks ached first when the area of her breasts (tissue expanders) developed infection --- left breast 5 weeks after mastectomy and right breast 7 weeks after mastectomy.) If you want to laugh, read my post I Bet You Never Had This Reaction.
I hope I am not alone on this one.
