TMI Bowel Movements



Recommended Posts

I’ve had very dark green almost black very sticky bowel movements since my surgery on Nov 17

Talked to surgeon yesterday he said sounds like old blood from surgery and didn’t seemed to be concerned. I asked him when should I be concerned and he said if it doesn’t clear up by one more week.

Anybody else have this issue? How long did yours last?

I had weird-colored BM's for the first month or so - then normal ever since. I've heard this before, so I don't think it's uncommon during the first few weeks.

I would have been happy to get rid of the old blood in my system that way... I vomited the old blood up and it was VERY painful! The gas pain was a walk in the park by comparison. If the surgeons office isn't concerned they probably see it happen frequently (they weren't concerned about the vomiting blood either because apparently is normal with my surgery but nobody thought to warn me -_-")

I'd say not to worry about it unless it keep happening after another week. Like others said, sometimes the Vitamins discolor our stool as well, especially Iron.
