Customer Question
I had blood work done...
I had blood work done about a month ago. I am dorman hep c (i believe). just over last week I've had vomiting fever and headaches that won't go away even with advil and excedrin. This morning my stool was white. I called my general and they are closed. Should I do anything or can I wait?

This is Dr. David

white stools or grey ash stools is a sign of blockage of your bile flow from your liver to your small bowel.

it is the bile from your liver and gall bladder which causes your stools to be brown

white or ash stools you need to go to the ER and get blood tests to check your liver and bilirubin levels and get CT and ultrasound scans of your liver to check for blockage of bile and see where the blockage may be from.

do you have an ER or hospital close to you?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
