Vomited 6 days ago with last vomit black water.  Clay coloured stools since. Dr. Says virus and stress.  How long  before stools return to normal ?

Go see GI doc: Clay colored stool suggests liver damage, specifically blockage of biliary tract. This can cause skin & eyes to turn yellow plus urine to be dark cola color. Vomit like black water, possibly w/"coffee grinds", suggests a bleeding ulcer. Regardless, you need to be seen again now. Don't wait. ...Read more

35 weeks 4 days pregnant. Frequent bowel movements since yesterday. 3X loose a day. Is it normal? Why does it occur and how long will it occur?

Normal with preg: This is quite normal especially as your child grows. Diarrhea is common during pregnancy due to the shifting hormone levels and your child pressing down on the intestine. This prevents larger stools from forming and more liquid consistent stools to pass through your system. The diarrhea will likely be episodic in nature and the frequency might increase as you approach your delivery date. ...Read more

Hi, does green color stool indicates anything for baby of 10 months old? Thanks

Hi, does green color stool indicates anything for baby of 10 months old? Thanks

Pretty common: The greenish color in stool is the breakdown product of the bile when it has not been in the gut long enough to go through a change to yellowish or brown. It is normal as is the loose consistency. Some digested material will take on a darker tint than others & the germs in the gut will also impact the final product. I'd ignore the whole issue. ...Read more
