Brown and dark brown stools

Hey everybody,

Hopefully someone can help put my mind at ease here. I've been to the doctor before for bowel problems. They gave me an endoscopy and found nothing. Now I'm starting to find stools that are half brown, and half dark brown. I mean, the piece of stool is literally half brown, and the other half is dark. It happens practically every time I go to the bathroom now. Just wondering if maybe this could be blood in the stool? I was bleeding before kind of like I had a fissure or something, but thats off and on. Maybe related? Anyway if andybody has any advice that would be awesome. Thanks!

Re: Brown and dark brown stools

The color of light or dark brown stools is just determined by the food you eat -- not blood!!

Yep, I reiterate what Harry said - the most probable cause of that half-brown, half-dark brown issue is food.

Happens to everyone, and doesn't mean anything bad.

I was getting this when i was 11 and i was curios too. Its really nothing to worry about, like they said, its just the food you eat.

Merry Christmas!
