Pinkish stool after chronic constipation. What could this mean? At times almost looks like consistency of vomit.

Pinkish stool after chronic constipation. What could this mean? At times almost looks like consistency of vomit.

This could cause a tear or fissure in the anus, or tear of the rectal lining. The blood would be "pinkish" and have the consistency of vomit when mixed with normal mucus in bowel. This needs evaluation ...see your doctor. ...Read more

Physician assess: Because of the position of the pain and the presence of slight fever he/she should be examined for the possibility of appendicitis. Twisting of an ovary would be another concern if your child is a female. Poor appetite and sluggish behavior also fit with appendicitis.
