    Bad butt

    I have had colon cancer twice. The first time in 2000 and again in 2015. Like many of you after 2 resections we don't have much of a colon left. Because of this I have very frequent bowel movements. Which of course leads to a very, very sore butt. For those of you with this problem, what has worked for you? I have tried countless cremes and medications both prescription and over the counter. Nothing seems to help. Please let me know what works for you. I am willing to try anything. Thank you in advance.

    Hi Ritchie

    That twice is just being greedy!

    How much of your colon do you have left? I have half but many on here have much less. I just wondered if there was anything you could do to slow everything down and make the problem less in the first place? I take up to 4 loperamide twice a day sometimes to get me back to normal.

    Regards, Nick
