Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It is just a pale blond color. I have had colon cancer 10 years ago. My trygliserides are high. I have been on triplix[sp] but stopped it because of pain in my right side into my back. I am 61 years old. This is the first time this has happened.
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 2 years ago.
Hello,
Thanks for providing more information.
Well pale blonde colored stools can be associated with cholecystitis, gallstones, or problems with liver or bile ducts.
A lack of bile (which could be caused by some obstruction) will cause your stools to be light in color.
Such stools can also be caused due to undigested fat in the stool.
As you have pain in right side of abdomen radiating to back so you need to be seen by your doctor for a clinical examination and undergo Ultrasound Whole abdomen,Liver function test,Urinalysis for further evaluation and management.

If pain is severe then you should visit ER for prompt treatment.
I hope this helps.
If you have any further query then feel free to ask.
