What are you taking?: There's a very good chance that your "detox" is the problem. Any change in diet, alteration in gut flora, or purgative agents may change your stool pattern & odor.

Stop the product & resume a balanced diet--see doc if persists. ...Read more
Please not for that!: There is no meaningful or long-term weight loss with stool softeners--only temporary laxation of stool and maybe loss of some "water".

The best way to probably weigh yourself is to weigh in the morning after using the bathroom and before eating. ...Read more

Can damage of the end of the abdominal wall cause pain initially? Can it make a person loose weight and effect bowel movement? is constipation involve
Unclear. What do you: mean by "end of abdominal wall". As Soul?Mind?Brain?Body creatures, sensation of pain signals from body to brain help prevent injury/death, yet there are many more complex interacting issues & mind/brain are dominant.

No Unless Stops Food: The only possibly valid issue for some is that stomach fullness (doesn't last long with water) might decrease the amount they eat. The controlling issue is the amount of food & what type, not calories per-se. Sugars/carbs most rapidly stored as fat, protein moderately so, natural fats the least stored as fat.
