Going on my forth week now and things are going well except for constipation. I was wondering if anyone else experinced this with IMRT? I did change my diet because the doctor said I would likely have issues with dirreaha but I seem to be having the opposite reaction. Anyway, I am going back to my old diet which is heavy on fiber, can't handle this bloated feeling.
