I first must say thank you - Margie I think it was you who mentioned this prescription laxative. My Dad who was diagnosed only about six weeks ago has been suffering terribly with constipation for the last three weeks or so. The doctors suggested virtually every over the counter laxative NOTHING worked - finally i called the oncologist's office and when i mentioned it, prescribed Enulose, and it has worked, it's the ONLY thing that has worked. At the moment Dad takes two oz of enulose both am and pm, one tab of Colase 3x a day and two tabs of Senekot at night( colase and Sen are both over the counter lax) This may be too much wondering if anyone might have any suggestions as to what maybre dad should hold back on. For the last day or so he has had very very loose stool ( one extreme to the other!) I will call the doctor's office tomorrow but to tell you the truth I have found that the information i have gathered from this board has been far more beneficial than speaking to the doctors - so thank you and my dad thanks you all too. ( i am going to get him to get on this site himself bc i think it will be good for him) In any case I thought I'd start here... - Daye
