Radiation Damaged Colon
My colon was severely damaged by radiation. I am now 5 years since I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. I have problems with my bowels when I walk. Is there anything I can do? Is there a special diet?
There are certain medications usually in enema form that may be helpful. You should consult with your physician.
