Weakness: Getting harder to have bowel movements

My husband had colon surgery to remove a 5cm tumor and is now on chemotherapy. He's suffering terribly from constipation. So far nothing worked. Any effective advice anyone?

I had the same, 8cm tumor Stage 2. Even 20 years later I have bowel problems from medications I take. I think I've tried it all. I now take Linzess (prescription) that he may need to get from a gastroenterologist. It takes a bit for the body to adjust, but I depend on it now and use it every day. I hope he finds relief, it's miserable to have to fight that. Good luck
