Every time i go to the toilet i have these weird things in clumps in my stool. after ive had a closer inspection i can only describe them as looking like roots from a plant, with the same texture as a branched stick. they're not alive, and they don't move, someone PLEASE shed some light??!!!

    I think it is fibre that you eat, sometimes I get that if you eat the whole long vege then it comes out like that. If you dont have diarhear then you should not worry. To be sure go to dr.

    I had the same thing and freaked out by it.. Turns out they were just mucus/fibrous strands.. Google that and look at the pictures to see if that's what you are refering to. Other than that if the pictures you see aren't what I mentioned then find some which are perhaps?
