yellow/orange diarrhea???


Recommended Posts

Mark now has bright yellow/orange diarrhea..Is this from the infection in his abdomen? The Onc said the bloating and infection is from the chemo. What can cause this color diarrhea? He had every test in creation, and all results are negative..The infection is responding and there is still some bloating, but not much..He still has no appetite..

The color sounds normal for someone who is not eating.

He needs to be taking imodium or lomotil. Is he on any reg regimine of these two drugs?

Mix up ensure or carnation instant breckfast drink with ice cream that helps sometimes. Also if he can drink things like gator aid. He needs to replenish the fluids and electrolytes he is losing.

Good luck, Cindy
