what causes very large diameter stools
she will benefit from daily stool softeners like colace or pericolace. avoid too much fiber as that add bulks to the stool.. with negative colonoscopy or thyroid test ... the next thing to look for is pancreatic function. they can cause large stools which are hard to flush. get stool studies and fecal fat content. also can take probiotics and pancreatic enzymes with doctor's approval. drink plenty water.
