I'm having serious problems with my stool. Diarrhea major, soft like jelly beans in stool, lots of pain. Have slightly enlarged spleen. Red and white blood cells high, platelets low. I've had malrotation of the colon surgery. Seeing a gastroenterologist but it's taking so long. Had a colonoscopy and it had to be stopped. Had an endoscopy.
