The colour, the variation, the size... 💩 is a sensitive topic but we all do it...

So it’s been 2 weeks out of my surgery and
finally getting to have more firmer poops.

The problem is before they were very runny, and still are on the mushy side, but now they are more pale in colour almost to the point of yellowy clay like colour.

I have an appointment to see the dr covering for my dr and she is quite new out of college. I don’t think that she takes what I say quite seriously.

For example 2 weeks ago I told her that the nurse at the hospital said my heart was a bit tacky aka tachycardia. It continued on when I got home, and every once in a while it flutters.

I know it sounds like a panic attack but I’m quite sure mine isn’t... but anyways back to my poop...

So I know I know... don’t google your symptoms but I already know I have a gallstone issue but I haven’t been having any pain. I just did bloodwork so I imagine that if there is a problem it will come up on there...

Anyone know any remedies that have been working for you to firm up your 💩?

I needed Probiotics to get solid poops. They gave me antibiotics by IV in the hospital and I always need probiotics afterward.

My Dr said yellow, clay color is normal. He also said consistency varies among people. When I eat kale it turns really green. If I eat something a little fatty it appears greasy/oily.

Also, if you're still on liquids your poop won't be firm. I'd wait until you're on solid foods and then see how it is.
