Customer Question

Good Morning Dr,
I have a question about my stool color.
I am a heavy drinker for the past 9 months or so (about a 1/2 pint of Vodka a day) and am concerned about the color of my stool. Is the attached pic I am sending of my stool look normal brown to you? I am 68 years old and suffer no other symptoms.
Urine color is normal as is everything else!
Thanks in advance.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
I have not been able to view your pic.
Please send the pic again.
Brown stool is still considered normal.
Bleeding causes dark black tarry stool.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
