How do you treat diarrhea & constipation

My chemo causes excessive diarrhea & constipation. I would appreciate suggestions on how to deal with them.

Hello @ostomy1 Welcome to Connect where everyone shares information and tips about their health journey and what worked or didn’t work. It must be very hard for you to deal with diarrhea and constipation. Have you discussed this with your doctor?

I’m going to ask a moderator to move your question to the ostomy group so you can virtually meet others with ostomies. In the meantime, here is some information from the American Cancer Society:

How long have you had this ostomy?
