Constipation with radiation?

Has anyone experience constipation and stomach pain with radiation treatments?  I'm hoping this is not an indication of something more serious, so it would be helpful to know if others have experienced this...

My dad is having the same problem.  Mom got him milk of magnesia.  That's what the dr recommended.  And she's giving him more water than usual.  He completed his radiation almost 4 weeks ago.
