I: I would call your doctor. The green stools may not be such a big deal because that can occur when feces transits too quickly through the colon. It prevents bile from be adequately metabolised and thus the feces do not from green to their characteristic brown colored. This is usually wet or liquid. However, the yellow stools could be from an absence of bile salts (liver, gallbladder or common bile duct). I would let you doctor know, as it is likely that he or she might want to see you sooner. ...Read more

I have a stomachache and went to the bathroom. I have green powdery stools. What can cause this?

Bile: Bile is green. It enters the bowel right after food exits the stomach. As the bile travels through the bowel, it turns yellow, then brown. If stool is moving fast through the bowel, it doesn't have time to turn brown, so it may come out yellow or even green. Stool travels faster when the bowel is irritated, such as when there is a virus. ...Read more

I just recent saw bright green stool after using the bathroom. This is new for me. In addition I have also had vaginal + rectal itching..

See answer: Green stool indicates that your food is moving through your intestines more quickly than usual and not giving your bile a chance to turn the normal brown color. By itself, this is not a sign of a specific illness. Your itching is unrelated to the green stool. Since your also having vaginal itching Candidiasis may be the cause.

Green stools, abdomanal pain along with gas, not nauseus and still have aappitite, hard for me to use the bathroom sometimes. What could be the problem?

Green stools, abdomanal pain along with gas, not nauseus and still have aappitite, hard for me to use the bathroom sometimes. What could be the problem?

Thoughts..: Depending on how long it's been going on for, it can be infectious (like a viral gastroenteritis), inflammatory (like crohn's or ulcerative colitis), constipation (which will give you abdominal pain, but usually not green stools), or it can be related to changes in your diet. So a long list of things it can be - would be more concerned if there were fevers, blood in the stool or prolonged course. ...Read more

I awoke to cramping, went to bathroom and found lightish black-dark green stool is it due to school stress, not eating well for two week, birth control?

I awoke to cramping, went to bathroom and found lightish black-dark green stool is it due to school stress, not eating well for two week, birth control?

Stress/diet: Most likely your symptoms are due to school stress and/or something you ate. Your birth control is unlikely to affect the color of your stool. Some people can develop an "irritable bowel" during times of stress, and this can cause cramping, constipation and/or diarrhea, try to avoid or reduce caffeine, and increase the fiber in your diet. Probiotics may also help relieve your cramping. ...Read more

I have soft pasty stool but it is extremely hard to pass. I don't go to the bathroom often and I am never able to pass very much and incomplete evac.

I have soft pasty stool but it is extremely hard to pass. I don't go to the bathroom often and I am never able to pass very much and incomplete evac.

Some options...: Colonics & purges are popular but should be avoided & can not be recommended (see earlier healthtap answers). Use of irritant laxatives are safe for the short-term only. Fiber supplements, stool softeners, & lavage agents like MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) are safe. Rx drugs are available based on work-up of your cause of constipation--rule out pelvic floor dysfunction, dysmotility, partial obstruction. Time for eval. ...Read more

Is it normal to have stool inside your rectum after you go to the bathroom?

Is it normal to have stool inside your rectum after you go to the bathroom?

?? wording issue??: You may want to change the wording on your question and resubmit in a more understandable form. Some residual stool will always be in your rectum unless you have a total washout done. Like people in a ticket line, the people at the back of the line move up as soon as the front people get tickets. Same with poo. ...Read more

I have small pebble shaped stool? This started 2 weeks ago what should I do? I go to the bathroom once everyday.

Constipated...: Even though you have a daily bowel movement, it sounds like you are somewhat constipated. Increasing your fluid intake can really help. Also increasing fiber rich foods can help. A trial of over the counter MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) can help soften stools. It can be titrated to get a good stool consistency. The only side-effect is too loose stool. ...Read more

My daughert is 9 years old and everytime she eats she has to go to the bathroom and in the past week she has brownish blood in the stool t?

Blood in stool...: ...Isn't brown. It's red, or it's black, depending on where it comes from. I suggest you see your doctor. S/he can likely do a simple stool test, called a hemocult, in the office to find out if it's really blood (i did two this week...One was, and one wasn't). Then, whether it turns out to be blood or not, your pediatrician can advise you what the next step should be. ...Read more

Add fiber: You should add fiber for a month. Try to have more water. To get more fiber use a cereal for breakfast and a salad for lunch and dinner. Drink water with every meal and in between.
