ok so i have to admit i have been analizing my movements alot lately always looking down as they have been very green lately with lots of mucus, but today there was something else in it, ( this is where it gets gross) so i grabbed the gloves my doctor gave me * he wants me to examine my stools for some reason* and i pulled out what litarly looks like a piece of thin tape, like film or something it was really really wierd could this be a tape worm? it is white slightly green but i think that was just from the movement, i was originaly thinking it was lettice but lettice would not be such a perfect strip like that, like it looked like a water test strip but clearish

:lol: There's nothing like getting down to the bare basics with this disease is there!?

We have to do the most gross tests, and if you got any pride left they'll find a worse one just for you :o:rolleyes:

It does sound a bit like tape worm, but hopefully not.

The old remedy for tape worm is to eat whole garlic cloves :lol: Used to work on the dogs, but don't know if it works with humans. I do hope you are managing to retain your sense of humour , it's so hard to do sometimes. Hang in there!

looked at some pics of tape worms and they usaly look slightly like worms, this thing just strait out looked like a piece of tape. like i said he thinks it was a parasite. Is it bad to have parasits? or is it a easy fix?

It's an easy fix. Some remedies are even OTC, but I think it's for pin worms or round worms. But aren't round worms really a fungus? I forget. Anyhow, believe it or not, it's a common subject of farmer wives down here in the Ozarks. But no, I don't know any home remedies. And I think some of those "cures" are worse than the disease. Have your dr look at it, but it does sound like tape worm. Did you eat any fish that may have been undercooked slightly two to three weeks ago?

You can also pick them up from an infected pet, either cat or dog, but more often dog.

Yes, best to check with your doctor, it will cause you to loose weight if it is a tapeworm, not to mention added digestive stress.

i acually dont eat fish, i cant stand seafood have not found any that i like, and i dont own any pets so thats probaby not ringworm, maybe hte fungus thing your talking about since i do have alot of nastys in my poops including like what looks like barnicals that come from some of the mucus and crap pretty unhealthy looking but i guess my colon probably is cleansing instelf after going gluten free\

ok i regect my comment about it maybe beeing a ringworm after looking at pics, i dont have any skin blemishss that would go along with it

You don't have 'eat' something contaminated to get worms either--they can also be passed person to person... One more day till your appt right???!

How big was the thing? Did you save it? There are things we eat that contain indigestible membranes, like citrus, for instance.

it was only like as big as a piece of tape that you would put at the corner of a poster to hang up. really was not as wide as tape though but it looked like tape. and im also wondering, can D come and go during the healing prosess?? as i just had a movement that was half d and half solid, i am workin around sick people so im not sure if i caught something or if its just me beeing me lately

yesterday i was pluged besides for that 1 small movement that contained the thing that is unknown at this time, an now i have D, the only thing i can think of is maybe i got whaterver the employes have since they all have d but my d is still coverd in mucuse and is very green. Could the D have been caused by the fact that i had a gluten free hotdog last night-- since they are very very prossesessed?

Most of your questions I have no experience with, but you know that damaged skin will at first appear to heal, then slough off, as with a sunburn. So it's not impossible that it's part of the regeneration process.

Probably not tapeworms. Ones I have seen are don't look like tape, more like little pasta segments that move slowly. You generally get that from rare meat, and only certain kinds, like wild animals (or pork in the Southwest, or so I have heard). Cats eat little whole raw animals to get them. Have you eaten an uncooked intestinal tract lately? I didn't think so.

It's totally possible that it could have been undigested lettuce.For some reason some coeliacs find in the early stages of healing that lettuce 'comes out' as it 'went in' !

My husband's been G.F nearly 2 years now.Some days he has a 'normal' bowel movement-other days he has D (what he affectionately refers to as a 'coeliac poo'!)-other days it's multi coloured even! :blink:

Everyone takes different time heal-and for some adults it can take 2 years or more.

As you've only been dx a while you may have quite a bit of damage to undo :)

Having said all that,it's a good thing to discuss your concerns with the doc,just to be on the safe side.

Good luck with your appt :)

Lister,

How about listing everything you ate 24 hours prior to the suspect poop? Maybe we can identify what could have caused it (oranges is definitely one, happens to me also!) For example, did you eat anything with onions the day before? Any veggies or fruit with skin on?

i would normaly think it is lettice since ia lmost alwayse dispense some when i have a movement, but it was litarly perfectly shaped rectangle. as for whati ate 24 hours prior here is the list not in correct order because my brain does not feel like working. bannans,salad * containing romain,spinich,carrots,cucumbers* *sometimes containing either a burger patty or a gluten free hotdog* small amount of kettle chips before i desided that i didnt want to risk the cc anymore. and gatorade other then that nothing i have been eating very little as of late.

I thought tape worms came off like a piece of rice?? I don't know though. HOpefully you will find out soon.

Monica

Monica, the worms themselves are long, flat, faily thin ribbons..length depends on age. The rice like things are eggs of tape worms.

I've had a puppy infested with tape worms, it really isn't nice.

it is not difficult to do a parasite cleanse. go to your local health food store and ask for help. most professionals reccomend doing a fiber drink as well to help remove the dead parasites, just make sure both products are gluten free.

I doubt it would be pinworms--you would know if you had those!!! You wouldn't be able to sit still! :blink:

Looking at tapeworms makes me want to barf!!! but it doesn't seem like that's your problem. Are you very underweight?

HOW was your doctor's appt today Lister??

i go for the opointment in 1 hour im nerviuse lol, also i can barely stand today, i think i may be starving myself, and its causing fatigue, im so parnoide about cc i wont use any of my dishs anymore since my roomate wont take care of anything. I have only been eating salads and bananas for the past 3 days besides for some lumbarg rice chips. No you couldnt say i am skinny but i did loose dramatic weight this past month, before going to the doctor for the first time and before i got sick i was 289 pounds now i am 195-197 not sure the exact weight so i lost almost 100 pounds in one month, not sure if this was because of beeing sick for so long, or from not eating, or just from rapade change in my diet since i used to eat burger king 3 meals a day because i work there and its free... im still loosing a average of a pound to 2 pounds a day lately

Holy crap! :o

That's definitely not healthy, and just starving yourself couldn't cause that in a month! The max amount of healthy weight to lose in a month is what? 12 lbs for an average person? Maybe 20 for a larger person? Yikes! I hope you get some answers!!! :blink:
