I always wanted to call a thread that- :D (don't ask why :rolleyes: )
okay, so this is a little weird to talk about, I need to discuss the color of poop. I normally am very regular with regular colored stool. Well, since I am on pain medication, I am constipated all the time. I am starting to require laxatives to go every other day. I am drinking a lot of water and eating more fiber and a lot of apples. But, the one thing I am not sure of, is why my stool is very light in color. I don't believe this is a real issue, but it has never "looked" like that before. ALmost has a yellow tint to it. Baby poop???
Well, any thoughts would be great!!!

From what I've read, poop can be all different colors and still be considered 'normal'. I know with myself, that if my poops are the baby diarrhea yellowish color, my intestines are inflamed and I'm usually in the middle of an IBS attack. Sometimes if my poops are that color for a few days, and I feel fine, I'll eat oreo cookies (seriously LOL) to make my poops a darker color. Than I feel better.... go figure!
