Posted , 3 users are following.

hello everyone, so today while I was on the toilet i saw something strange in my stool and decided to pick it out with a stick. Its brown a rubber like, while folding it it folded back exactly like rubber. Its about a 2cm long and maybe 2mm thick. Visited my doctor after it, says she doesnt know what it is and redirected me for a stool sample. Ill be going to give the sample tommorow but am so afraid of the result and would like yours oppinion what it could be.
