Bowel changes on cytoxan and avastin

On Dec 22, '08 I started cytoxan and had my 1st avastin infusion. I was just wondering if anyone who is or has been on these drugs have noticed a change in the frequency of their bowel movements. I'm by no means constipated or do I have diarrhea, it just seems like I have to go to the bathroom at least 3x a day.I know it's better then not going but could it be from the drugs? thanks for any responses.

I'll bet it's the drugs .......... but mention it to our onco.  I took Miralax two days in a row last week following Carbo/Taxotere ... and I am "down" to 3x a day ... no diahrrea tho.  I will talk to my MD at next weeks visit to determine if it was the Miralax, the chemo, or a combination of both.
