Can brain radiation affect the bowel movements?

Can brain radiation affect your bowel movements? - my sister is having to wear a pen because when she has bowel movement she does not know it until she urinates. She doesn t feel the urge to have a movement. She had brain radiation about 3 1/2 months ago.

Hi and welcome to HCM,

You can experience lack of appetite from brain radiation. But this does not affect bowel movements. Consult doctor your doctor for further management.

Wish you speedy recovery

Thanks
