Bowel not settling after op
I was diagnosed on the 18 Dec with bowel cancer and had a resection op on 3 Jan. Unfortunately they found tumour in 6 lymph nodes so will have 6 months of chemo starting in next 2 weeks.
Worried though because I feel like my bowel is not settling. I feel like I constantly need to go to the toilet, but when I go nothing happens, or something small happens but I still have the same feeling when im done. I feel heavy and uncomfortable all the time. My appetite is still poor and eating too much can make me feel sick.
I want to start leaving the house but worried that I need to be near a toilet in case I need to go - the feeling is starting to wear me down a bit - anyone know when I can expect to stop feeling this way?
