If the cancer is chemoresistant then I advise you to try radiation since endometrial cancers can often br responsive to radiation. The diarrhoea may be due to an infection because of lowered immunity as a result of the chemotherapy. Giving Eldoper can worsen the condition, if the diarrhoea is due to infection. She might need an extensive course of antibiotics. You might have to get her admitted in a hospital and get a stool culture done to find the right antibiotics for her infection.
Hope she improves.
