Okay, we've all been asking questions about poop and discussing its various qualities, right? Well, I was wondering why there can't be a PHOTO of what a NORMAL poop is supposed to look like! And, for comparison, photos of typical celiac stools, stools that display evidence of malabsorbtion, etc....

We need a whole section of the board devoted to POOP!

I think the problem is that pictures only give you 50% of the story. The other part is consistency and smell, which you can only tell... in other ways. I'm certainly not going to have samples for reference for either of those two senses. But it would certainly be better than nothing!

Okay, for smell, we need computer printers equipped with scratch-and-sniff. :)

Anybody have any ideas for consistency?

This is too funny! I actually have a bunch of Curran's stools on my camera right now as the GI said to bring her some pics if I could! LMBO! She asked me to photograph next to a white background if at all possible. As he has blown out in clothing it is a fun exercise to scrape it out and put it on a paper towel. Sorry if TMI. I can contribute to the photo gallery of poop if it gets started! **trying to imagine what the gallery would be called** :blink: :P

Is there such a thing as normal poop?

just asking, there is no 'normal' poop in our house, so maybe I live a sheltered life.

to continue our scatological discussion....(I love that word and don't get to use it in a sentence often) :rolleyes:

I was watching Oprah one day and her guest was Dr. Mehmet Oz. I bought his book called "You: The Owner's Manual." On the show they discussed poop in great detail and how it was supposed to be. (My mom has my book currently or else I"d refer to it). I remember the poop was supposed to be sort of snake like and in a slight "S" shape, as if it had been softly molded in the colon. Not hard and lumpy, not floating....but firmly formed and slightly curving.

that's all I remember, was in advanced and undiagnosed stage of Celiac and everything was in a fog.... :blink:

Actually, there are pictures - sort of. There is something physicians use called the "Bristol Stool Scale" which gives pics of the different kinds of stools, with desciriptions. If you Google "bristol stool scale", you'll find it.
Don't ask me why I know this....
