White poop: White stool usually means there is a lack of bile. The liver is in the location you are referring to. There are different possible causes. I do recommend that you let your physician know as this isn't normal. See: https://www.mayoclinic.org/white-stool/expert-answers/faq-20058216#:~:text=White%20or%20clay%2Dlike%20stool,intestine%20during%20the%20digestive%20process.
