This is Dr. David

it can be normal to see stool in your colon

that is where stool moves through

if you have constipation problems or slow bowel motility, your doctors can see excessive stool in your colon.

if you have lots of constipation, then you can have stool impaction in your colon which means your colon is filled up with nothing but stool.

do you have problems with constipation?
