What could be the cause for my 19 month old to have stone like stool? And what can I give her to easy her pooping or stool

Hard to guess: Each child with constipation needs to be sure there is no other disease causing it. A pediatrician's evaluation is needed. We do not want a child to get chronic constipation. If constipation is due to slow movement of food and poop through the gut, then things to try are vegetables, water, prune juice, prunes, fiber-plus-water, Miralax (polyethylene glycol), senna extract, milk of magnesia, etc... ...Read more

My husband's been having loose stools quite often. He's recently had problems with kidney stones and I'm just wondering if this Is connected?

No, but...: Kidney stones are not directly connected with loose stools, but the drugs used for stone-related issues such as antibiotics, pain medication, or alpha-blockers, e.g., tamsulosin, may indirectly induce loose stools. So, trace down the onset of loose stools in association with the timing of starting medications, and bring those to Doc for review, analysis, more Hx, physicals, and possible tests... ...Read more

Recently diagnosed with gall stones now went to toilet notice pink tinge around stool then the second time I went looks like blood in water is red and can't see stool. Very worried it's cancer?

Diverticulosis is another common cause as we get older. Best to get an exam and possible colonoscopy. Cancer is possible but other items much more likely. ...Read more

If the amount of blood increases or your feel dizzy/light-headed, go the to the ER. ...Read more
