The dark vaginal discharge could be remnants from your procedure which your uterus is now expelling. Not dangerous unless with fevers, pain, bleeding more than a pad/hr, or foul smelling discharge. ...Read more

More data needed: "Atypical" does not mean anything with "diarrhea". Sloppy wording. Is it infection or inflammatory? Stool cultures and C Difficile tests rule out the former. Colonoscopy helps with the latter. In addition there are malabsorption syndromes or certain cancers that can cause diarrhea - gastroenterologist can help get to the bottom of this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Liver Problems: The color of stool can help guide your doctor to determine the cause of the problem. White stool is often a result of a liver disease such as viral hepatitis which causes the bilirubin in your blood level to rise. As a result there can be less of it in the stool and the stool then becomes "discolored" or white, gray, or pale.
