I have a concern that my Onco doesn't seem to stress enough. On my second AC treatment, I experienced chronic constipation - didn't go for 10 days! I was in a lot of pain - it was awful. Eventually, they asked me to take laxatives (double the dose), and stool softeners so eventually, that made me go. I already had hemorrhoids from before so that made it more painful. Anyway...my third AC treatment, I had some blood (my cut is taking forever to heal)in stool so I thought it was just related to my hemorrhoids. it eventually went away. For my last AC treatment I've had blood in my stool for two weeks now. And it hurts a little when I go. Should I panic? Is this normal? How do I heal my colon during chemo treatments? I am very concerned. Please help me!
Thanks for your support.
