Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, you don't have any other symptoms and there is no foul smell, mucus, blood in that stool so it's considered normal and there is no worry about anything serious.

You should maintain a good hydration.

Take Citrucel for few days.

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!!
