I have dry bowel movements. The stool is large and very dry. I am not constipated. I had Radiation Treatments for Prostate Cancer in 2007. Is this a Post-Radiation symptom? I take Colace, 100 mg, 1x daily. If necessary, is there anything else I should do?

You probably need more fiber and water in your diet. That should help soften your stools.

If their was radiation damage to your colon, among your symptoms would be watery stools. The job of the colon is the remove extra water from your poop.

Go back and read Lido's advice again.


Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

I agree with Lido more fiber and water.Smile

Increase your fiber and water, i drink at least 2, 8 oz glasses with every meal. Cut back on sugary drinks. You might also want to cut out processed foods like cheeses,frozen meals and start eating more healthy.
