Burping

My father is day 15 out from his first rchop treatment. He is exhausted but in no pain and has had no nausea. Yesterday he started with uncontrollable diarrhea a d very foul burps. Is this normal for this type of chemo? Any ideas how to control either

    Time to call...
    Call doctor! As to the burping, this may be acid reflux, which needs controlling so that a pre-cancerous condition in the esophagus does not develop (Barrett's esophagus).

    Yup ! Call !
    Yes, do call the doc.

    The diarrhea in a chemo patient can lead to very rapid dehydration.

    My mom is experiencing similar
    My mom is day 21 after RChop and will be getting her second round in a few days. The last couple of days she has had uncontrollable diarrhea also. she has her regular appointment tomorrow. she also has started a new antibiotic called ZyVox to clear up an infection. Can't figure out if the diarrhea is from the chemo or the Zyvox.
