    Hi Tony,

    I am sorry to hear you have been suffering so much with this side-effect of treatment.

    I know that diarrhea can be a side-effect of chemotherapy, I didn't experience it to the same level as yourself though. That sounds very severe to cause you to be hospitalised. Is it possible that you picked up a virus in this time, when your immunity would be very low?

    It is very draining and exhausting I hope that since you wrote your post things are beginning to improve for you.
