Ift could be old : Blood. If you had biopsies taken or a polyp removed then its not uncommon to see old blood in stool. It could also reflect an upper GI source such as gastic ulcers. If you continue to experience the above then let your GI doc know. ...Read more

How can I tell difference between blood in stool and pieces of food? I ate a lot of watermelon yesterday. My next bm was full of red, stringy things?

How can I tell difference between blood in stool and pieces of food? I ate a lot of watermelon yesterday. My next bm was full of red, stringy things?

Also, blood will usually make the commode water reddish like food coloring in water, while food in stool will not run like that. You can ask your doctor for a stool guaiac test to be sure. ...Read more

For the past 3 days I have had an uti, and am trying to kick it. Today i had white thick stringy stuff in my stool. Any clue what that could be?

Stool changes: Probably nothing serious, but to really tell what this is it must be examined in the laboratory for cells, microorganisms, and so on and so on. May also be yeast infection, but you would have to show this to a doctor. ...Read more
