Alcoholic Stool Symptoms
Husband with alcoholic cirrhosis is very jaundice, fatigue, and stool for two days is white. What can be done?
Sorry to hear:
Of your husband's trouble...the MOST IMPORTANT "start" dealing with this situation is the complete PERMANENT CESSATION of ALCOHOL in any form! Much of the liver damage may be REVERSIBLE. Your husband should seek help with DETOX... (If he is already SOBER...vitamins and good nutrition and time may lead to reversing the symptoms/signs. If he continues to drink he will die!

At sisters 1 1/2wks ago. My 2 yo found disc battery. Gave to me. Sis said it was only one. Dark brwn stool today. Other symptoms if he ate one by now?
Battery: Common problem. We are always concerned that this could result in aspiration into the lung and cause a breathing problem. However, if it occurred 1 1/2 weeks ago, chances are he has already passed it. I'd keep an eye on his bowel movements to make sure it's not a persistent occurrance. If it is, you can always discuss it with your doctor. Read more
