Question: Concerned....


 rybakgirl - Tue Dec 06, 2005 10:54 am

I am a 35 year old female. I have peptic ulcers which are under control. I have a fibroid tumor in my uterus also. I also have hasimotos disease and am iron deficient with anemia. My question is for the last 2 weeks I have been having more BM's than normal and they are always light tan and this happens twice a day. The are sometimes normal in size and form but the next time I go they are like the size of a ribbon. Last night I had a bout of diarrhea. This happens occassionally too. I had read somewhere that light tan stools could be a sign of liver problems. Should I be concerned about colon cancer as well? I take celexa 80 mg a day (for about 5 years), metoclopermide 5mg 3x a day and just finished taking my iron supplementation thearpy. Any suggestions?

Go have a steak dinner and see what comes out. Seriously. Maybe it's your diet. Obviously you should go to the doctor too and get some blood tests done. Liver problems are very easy to spot in blood tests.
