Has anyone else had really grim gastric symptoms with PC? I've had bloating for a while, for the last week it's been joined by diarrhoea and nasty gut spasms, which are quite painful. The bloating has also worsened. There are various over the counter options but I'm on so many drugs I don't know what's safe. I mentioned it to my GP and she's increased my pain meds and given me an anti sickness drug, but these haven't improved the problem.

I'm stage 1, I had a failed Whipples 9 weeks ago and am due to start chemo within the month. I was starting to feel better but this is really dragging me down. I'd be grateful for any tips.
