Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your husband's problem. These problems can either be due to the cancer, which has been ruled out by Ct scan and an endoscopy. Other cause of this pain could be due to the medicines which he is receiving. It could also be irritable bowel syndrome but that is a diagnosis of exclusion and other causes should be ruled out before he starts taking treatment for the same.

Hoping for the best.
