Burning sensation in lower stomach/colon area after chemo.

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?

My mother has rectal burning and it's been 7 months since chemo. She had a lot of diarrhea. Does yours still burn? If so, what did you do to cure it? Did you find anything that helped? Did they put name to it? Please let me know. Thank you.

I got a weird sensation in my stomach during chemo. infusion, not aferwards, can't describe it, kinda burning, churning....anyhow, twice I got atropine infusion with my chemo. and it took care of that, plus the drippy nose issue. I didn't get it last infusion, didn't get the stomach issue either, but just the drippy nose, and kinda felt nausia for the first time which they just gave me some pill for and it went away. But, maybe you could ask the onc. nurse to try the atropine and see if this resolves it.

You have postd to a very old thread (2010) and Cessna hasn't visited the forum since 2016. 

Maybe if you start your own thread with this question, someone will be able to answer you.
