      Hi Bambi68,
      Beano worked well for me, when chewed with the first bite of a meal. Eventually I learned that I had to give up dairy products after RCHOP chemo. Never had a lactose problem before chemo, but can not tolerate much dairy now.

      Hi, magnesium tends to give you diarrhea so I'm not sure as to why you are on it. If this continues you are not getting any benefit from the mag as your losing it in the electrolytes you are spilling. If it continues, you might want to ask your doc if you are a candidate for Sandostatin (Octreotide) to dry up the excess fluid in your colon. Best of luck, Carm RN.
