Diarrohea and Chemo

Has anyone suferred severe diarrohea with chemo? The first 3 cycles were the same and I suffered constipation but round 4 on day3 I statred to feel ill and haven’t been able to keep anything inside except white toast, boiled potato, rice and pretzels. I was put on a drip on Thusrdayand still can only eat these items and of course drink of plenty of fluids. I now have shingles. Am seeing GP in morning but wondered if anyone has experinced anything similar?
