In July I was in an accident. My son was driving a Honda Chuck Wagon (think golf cart crossed with a 4-wheeler) when he lost control and slammed into a tree at about 20 mph. I had a horrible black and purple bruise from hip to hip, which was very painful especially on my left side. I took the full force of the crash on the seatbelt.  It felt like I had been cut in two.  It took about three weeks for the bruising to completely resolve. I've had two c-sections in the past (2000 & 2002) and so have a lot of scar tissue in my lower abdomen. Something felt like it had been ripped loose on that left side. Now I have a fatty knot near my left hip as a result of the accident, which seems to be permanent. It does not hurt. Ever since that accident however I have had flat, ribbon like stools. Do you think I have traumatized my intestines? I did tell my doctor about this and he acted like it was no big deal.

Hi Bombchele,

And welcome to Healingwell. You attached to a very old post, so I created a new one for you so you would get more responses. First off do you have Crohns, you didn't say? I was wondering if you have had a colonoscopy or a small bowel follow thru? This would show if you have any strictures or areas of narrowing. Sometimes spasms can cause you to have the flat ribbonlike poops, sometimes its from inflammation and strictures. Maybe you could provide a little more info.
