hi, I'm a 25 year old female. My patient history is nothing extensive other than i had a very bad experience with food poisoning over a year ago that really messed me up. I spiralled into other issues such as anal fissures, hemorrhoids and the inability to complete bowel movements. Since then, things have improved in that i am able to pass stool pretty regularly however it is slightly soft and loose at times and not a fully formed stool. Around the time of having food poisoning i also had gastritis from the medicine i was on so i took PPIs to help on a short term basis. I haven't had issues with that since. Now to get to the real issue which started yesterday morning. when i went to the toilet i was shocked by the clay/tan colouring of my stool. It was half normal coloured and half light brown. I googled it and was alarmed that this is not a good sign, it could mean pancreatic issues and liver problems or a blocked bile duct, i believe. Today my stool was all the same tan colour. i have no other symptoms except soft stool. no pain, no jaundice. should i be worried?
