Question what does this mean?

My name is Mindy and Ive had stomach problems for years now and they have yet to figure out a diagnosis. My mother and my boyfriend think that everytime I eat something oily, or even slightly greasy that it tends to worsten my symptoms. I also have been having black tarlike stool. Does any one know what this might mean?

Re: what does this mean?

Have they checked your gallbladder and pancreas? The black tarlike stool you describe could be blood as that is the description my doc told me to watch for. I would head back to the doc if I were you. Good luck, I know it can be hard to get a diagnosis, it took me almost 20 years to be told I had crohns disease.

I was also thinking gallbladder, because of the problem with greasy foods, but I was not sure. My friend was just diagnosed with chrohns disease, but she has a hard time describing what it is, can you clarify?
