Hello,

My name is***** and am reviewing your question now.

Is that black tarry stool? do you have any stomach pain or other GI symptoms? Did you get your colonoscopy report?

pain went away, with levsin

Thanks for the information.

I see that you came here last week with similar symptoms. Since you have already done colonoscopy, you must wait for its report before we conclude anything. I assume you doctor must have done blood and stool test as well.

The black tarry stool indicates bleeding in upper GI, the most common cause is ulcer, but any instrumentation can cause minor damage. Sometimes instrumentation like colonoscopy can cause minor trauma and bleeding in GIT leading to blood and mucus. If the bleeding is excessive it can lead to black stool. If you feel like you did not eat anything that may change your stool color, I suggest you to monitor it for a day and two as you don't have any other associated symptoms. If you persistently see black stool, then you have to see your doctor again to rule out upper GI bleeding.

Please leave a positive rating by clicking stars on your screen so that Ican get the credit for my time with you. If you have any follow-up question,you can reply to this post.

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.
