Improving bowel function after treatment

Bowel function may change after treatment for bowel cancer.

Surgery for bowel cancer involves removing some of the colon and/or rectum. These operations can cause changes in how the bowel works.

Other treatments such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy can also cause changes in the bowel after treatment. There are ways bowel function can be improved, including changes to what you eat, activity and relaxation.
