    Hi Mrucci,

    Stool softener as Marion has said to you is definitely something that could be investigated and discussed with the gp/onc. My dad took Lactulose morning and night and that helped him quite a lot. He tried Movicol first but that didn’t work so well.

    Please let us know how things go and know we are here for you.

    My best to you and your husband,

    Gavin

    Mruccci….make sure to speak with the physician. He/she may recommend a stool softener or other digestive aid.
    Hugs

    Hi Mrucci,

    Not much that I can add to what Marion has already said to you but wanted to share this link with you as I think it will be of help to you both –

    http://www.macmillan.org.uk/information-and-support/coping/side-effects-and-symptoms/eating-problems

    Have you mentioned all of this to the onc/gp as I think they would be able to add something here and I think this is something that they should know about as well.

    My best to you,

    Gavin

    Mrucci….know that this is a common problem; some issues are related to the disease, treatments or prescribed drugs. It may help to eat small, high protein portions throughout the day. The digestive process is slowed due to inactivity, hence it may be helpful to move around following intake of food. Not that your husband should exert himself, but small walks aid a better functioning digestive process. Others may have additional tips to share with you.
    Hugs,
    Marion
