Hello,

My name is Rachel. Thanks for your time.

My abdominal has grown and I'm having a lot of back pain and pain on my left hip and upper leg for around two months now. I have notice I go to the bathroom to stool at least five or six times a day and instead of having one long stool, it's what looks like little grapes or cherries size stool.

Any thoughts?

What's different since June: I'm under depression medication.

Thank you,
