Hello tigercub,

As I noticed you haven't had a reply to your query yet I thought I'd stop by and ask how you are doing. Have you found the suggestions you're looking for when it comes to food? If not, you might want to have a look at this page from our website that talks about bowel problems in people with cancer.

Hopefully, some of our members who have been through a similar situation will come along shortly to offer you suggestions but in the meantime, feel free to reach out to our cancer nurses and ask if they can help. Their lines are open Monday - Friday between 9 a.m - 5 p.m on 0808 800 4040, which is free of charge if you're calling from the UK.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Renata, Cancer Chat Moderator
