I think i talked to you last week. I have been having trouble with my bowel movements. Always seem to come out fine, sink not float but the color is always changing. Yesterday i had two nice movements, nice brown in color. Today, two bowel movements, pale in color. Over the last two weeks its been different stole by stole color wise. I weighed 168 on tuesday, 166 on thursday, i believe yesterday i weighed 168 or 169 and today i bought a scale and i weighed 162. Is it even possible to lose 7 pounds in a day? Im just very convinced now that i have a problem. I saw my primary doc on wednesday cause ive been having a pain in my left rib cage. When he examed all of my upper abdomen i was in no pain, but when he pushed on my rib it hurt alot. He said i had floating rib and now im seeing a chiropractor.
Yes, i did. But i hadnt had pale stools like this as of that day. They were always changing from brown, dark brown, light brown, tan. Now i had this. And with this pain, im worried im being miss diagnosed
It looks whiteish/ yellow. Its crazy, because friday and saturday, my stools were nice dark brown. Its never been like this before.
I had TGI Fridays for lunch yesterday. I dont have breaded foods often anymore cause i cut carbs from my diet and went gluten free. Yesterdays meal was mash potato skins, grilled chicken, fried shrimp, and clam chowder soup
No pain at all in my upper right. Just in my left rib, sometimes i can feel it a little just to the right of my left rib cage, or down the side of my left abdomen.
I fear pancreatic cancer cause it says that stools change color when this happens.
No, no jaundice or yellow of skin. I had liver and pancreas done in August 2012 and March 2013, both times came back normal. Still not convinced.
Kinda. When i read about it, everyone seems to have a different opinion on what causes it.
I think it said that pancreatic cancer causes pale stool cause the bile has a block. So that makes it white or pale.
He has told me that he is willing do that, but it would cost money and he says i dont need it. With the pale stool, along with this weight loss im seeing now, i just cant find an explanation. I have cut carbs out of my diet since the first week of June. I use to eat tons and fried foods and bread, but dont anymore. Ive lost 10 pounds. That would be normal too? Cause i worry that could be a sign too.
Yes. And in that frame i had completely cut carbs about 98 percent, minus the occasional hot dog. Everything is grilled chicken, steak, potatoes, corn etc.
I will talk to my doctor about a CT. I just want to be able to enjoy life again.
