What do you suggest for constipation? My husband has been receiving chemo since January of 2005 and is currently taking Erbitux (cetuximab) and Camptosar (irinotecan) with 5-FU (fluorouracil). His chemo treatment is on Tuesday, and by Thursday night he has to switch to chicken broth to keep his stomach from becoming spasmodic and his stool is so hard he can hardly pass it through the stoma. Doctors are always worried about loose stool, but he has just the opposite problem.

An over-the-counter stool softener such as docusate (Colace and other brands) can be used to help with constipation and hard stool. Your husband can also try increasing his dietary intake of fiber and vegetables. Other home remedies such as prune juice can be helpful as well.
