Black balls: so, black balls, I asse is the " feces or poop". I do not think pooping black balls has any connection whatsoever with urine infection. It sounds like you might be suffering from constipation. Please get your stool tested for any blood in it. Please see a GI specialist ...Read more

Give more fiber+H2O: Important details: ? weight gain, abdominal pain? frequency of bm's? If your child is happy, stooling regularly and seems healthy, then stool appearance is less important. Many children this age are picky and eat less veggies and fruits which can either cause a large, hard stool or pellets. Mucous glands are present in the rectum to lubricate defecation. See doctor if child seems ill. ...Read more

Eat more fiber: Adequate fiber (25-36g/d), plenty of fluid & regular physical activity are important for regular bowel function. Osmotic laxatives are also available over-the-counter - just ask your pharmacist. If you haven't had a colonoscopy in over 10 years, it's time. Definitely go see your family doc if you've noted any unintentional weight loss or change in appearance of your stool. ...Read more
