I’ve been trying to find an answer to this for months, but after discussing it with my Oncologist and Gastrotoligist I still don't know what is causing this. The day after I have my once a week chemotherapy I develop a burning pain in the lower stomach/colon area right above the groin. The pain intensifies if I’m sitting or standing, and goes away if I’m laying down. Thus, I have spent from two to five days in bed at a time because of this. One doctor suggested Irritable Bowl Syndrome. Anoter suggested Diverticulitis, or chemo induced colitis. Yet, neither doctor knows what it is, and both have perscripted antibiotics, which help only a little. Have any of you had the same type of thing, and if so were you able to cure it, and how?
