Getting yellow balls in stool (pictures!

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have been dealing with IBS for the last year. I had a colonoscopy done a couple months ago and it came back negative for IBD. I started getting these yellow balls in my stools a few weeks ago with my flare up/Abdominal pain. It seems like it only accompanys when I started having abdominal pain. I thought it was corn at first so i thought nothing of it but then i thought i haven't eaten corn in months because i don't do good with it. I do not eat chick peas either. Someone please help imageimage

    im not sure what it is but ive been getting the same thing! i thought it was corn but it was too hard and circular to be corn, ive only seen these things like 2 or 3x in my stool but im still pretty worried. ive not been diagnosed with IBS or anything like that but ive suspected i may have it for a year or so now. please lmk if you ever figure out what it is!

    hello, my friend i have these too i have IBS-D from past 7 years but few months ago i got these yellow type balls then i research through net and find out these are

    Gallstones :- A hardened deposit within the fluid in the gallbladder, a small organ under the liver.

    Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid.

    Gallstones can vary in size and number and may or may not cause symptoms.

    People who experience symptoms usually require gallbladder removal surgery. Gallstones that don't cause symptoms usually don't need treatment.

    i am lucky mine come only few days and are gone now these are generally occurs due to eat food high in cholesterol oily food etc so first make your stomach strong then these will be prevented.

      These are definitely not gallstones. Gallstones are extremely hard and not spherical. If they form in the gall bladder thats where they stay,usually getting bigger until gall bladder removal is necessary. Probably this is Candida in the gut Your doctor should ask you for a stool sample that can be analysed.
