Diarrhea after colon resection: How long does it last? Any tips?
I was diagnosed with cancer of the cecum following a routine colonoscopy last July. I had the colon resection last Thursday 9/28. Things seemed to be going well, but on Friday a frequent bloody diarrhea started. Kind of scary. They are keeping me an extra day in the hospital to try to get it resolved. Had hoped to go home today for sure. Has anyone else had this problem? And, how long did it last? What dietary changes, or helpful tips, if any?
