The only thing that helped my digestion to settle down was sticking to a low-residue diet of white rice, dry toast, applesauce and bananas.

Sometimes you get fistulas from radiation. You may need to see a surgeon and have part of the colon removed. Antibiotics will be needed for infection. I would see a surgeon or gastroenterologist as soon as possible.

You might want to see a colon rectal surgeon who is associated with the hospital where you had your hysterectomy. They are the ones who would do surgery if you had a hole in your intestines or lower in your colon. Don't wait as infection can spread quickly. Unless they do some diagnostic tests. Have you had a colonoscopy yet or a CT scan?
