I have Yellow in my stool since Dec.7, 2015. I looked it up

Customer Question

I have Yellow Slime in my stool since Dec.7, 2015. I looked it up on the Internet and it stated that I should get to a DR right away. I called & made an appt with the DR who has done Colonosophies on me before but then I remember my Husband reminded me why I cancelled it before.
I had Polio when I was 5. I was paralized from the neck down but after two years I walked out of the hospital with just a limp and drop foot. At 16 I had the ankle fused. After that I led a very normal life. I got married and had 3 healthy daughters, I divorced & got remarried 10 yrs later. Next month 36 yrs. I do have Diverticulitis, so i figured it could be from that. Now I have Post Polio Syndrome and slowly I'm loosing all my functions. I can't walk at all, etc.
I have had cysts & tumors removed since I'm 18. I have two Sisters & one Brother who died from cancer. I am 78. I can not go through the Prep work for a Colonosophy.
Thank You. Genevieve

Hello!

I recommend that you see your doctor about this even if you do not agree to have a colonoscopy....

If certain infections then it may be very likely that you would benefit from an antibiotic course

I think stool sent for cultures / leukocytes / ova and parasites and C.diff toxin should be done ...

You may have blood work such as a CBC ( complete blood count)

An abdominal CT scan might be considered for you

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns or discussion

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards ,

Hello again!

I stepped away a few minutes...

No my first guess would NOT be cancer...

It sounds MORE LIKELY to be some intestinal infection ...

I suspect that getting treatment will probably clear it up for you....

Thank you very much. You put my mind at ease. I'm not afraid of dying I just don't want to hurt or to cause problems for my husband or my children.
Thank you again.

Hello again,

You are very welcome. I hope that you feel better soon!

Do get attention to the matter and I think that you will benefit from a course of antibiotics I think.

Best Regards ***** *****!
