I have recently been diagnosed with gastritis and rectocele and it feels like my whole life revolves around my poop nowadays. I have been noticing my poop has been light brown and regular brown mixed. Is this normal? Should I be worried?

    Light coloured stool can indicate a liver, gb or pancreas issue - something restricting bile flow.  I am having the same issue plus have lost weight.  Currently all tests are coming back normal (US, bloodwork).
