Question: dicolored bowel movements
|mommyO2 - Thu May 03, 2007 10:19 pm|
my 6 yr old daughter has had a bowel movement which was a very strange color, it a was almost a cream color, and was firm not runny. she has complained of a tummy ache before and since this movement. what could this be and what caused it?

White or very light colored stools can be an indication of a blockage in the bile duct of the liver/gallbladder. An occasional light colored stool is OK but if this continues your daughter should be evaluated.
