I have 13 more radiation treatments. The pain from going to the bathroom is so intense, I can't leave the house for fear of when it will hit. I have been trying hard to keep up my nutrition and not lose weight, but I need suggestions for what to eat to minimize the pain. I take stool softeners and then I have to take Immodium to reduce the diarrhea burn. Is there anyone who would recommend a liquid diet, the protein drinks, Ensure, anything else. i have to be at several doctor appointments this week and have a lot of anxiety about when I will need to go to the bathroom and how to manage the pain. I have Lortab that I haven't taken yet because Narcotics make me very nauseous! Help??
