Alright, this is fairly embarrassing to discuss but I'm a new member and am in a state of panic until my GI appointment on the 17th.
I just had a bowel mocement, and part of the stool looked like a string of pearls! I'm sorry to be graphic, but it was balls of stool connected by a thin string. I have never seen this before and am beyond worried. Has anyone else experienced this??
I'm a 29 year old female who was diagnosed with IBS by my family doctor when I was 17. In the past 5 years, I was essentially in remission with minimal flare-ups until a couple of months ago when the alternating diarrhea and constipation started. I'm honestly worried out of my mind that this is something worse since I do have a family history of colon cancer (my father was diagnosed with a stage 1 tubular adenoma and cured via a resection when he was 70).
