    Could diarrhea, tiredness with stomach bloating be due an enlarge spleen?

My father has an enlarged spleen along with lymphoma. Over the last couple of months he has lost lots of weight, and has just been referred back to the heamotoligist. However, the last week or so, he has chronic diarrhea, constant tiredness along with a heavy feeling in his tummy.
Could this be connected to the spleen and lymphoma problem?

Chronic diarrhea may be due to disturbed colon function... may be related to poor immunity caused by lymphoma. Stomach bloating may be due to dyspepsia. Tiredness or fatigue is definitely to occur in malignancy. Consult his attending doctor and let him tell about his complaints... so, he might give medicines to resolve all the problems.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
