A little while ago I posted about yellow stool. I was having mixed diarrhea and it was yellow in color and I was quite concerned. Then I was fine for awhile and had some normalish BMs that were brown and the other day I had a bad day with 5 BM's but that was after not going for 2 days prior. But this time the BM was quite dark in color, not black but dark brown. I am wondering if that is because I didn't go for a couple days so then it darkened up.I really should get in and have some stool tesing done, since I have never done that.Do your BMs range in color or is your color fairly consistent ??

The longer the stool has in the colon the more color gets developed from the yellow to the dark brown.Dark brown is fine.Black with a tarry consistency is not (that what a gastric bleed looks like when it comes out).
