I had green at first before I was eating solid foods. I was told that that was normal. Since then, they've mainly been normal brown stool color, except...
Anyone have blackish output?
I have and my nurse is convinced it's due to my taking iron, however I've been taking iron for weeks and the blackish stools just showed up in the past few days, so I don't feel so reassured.
Diagnosed with UC in 2007
Flare in 2007 causing anemia requiring blood transfusions, eventually controlled by asacol and 6-MP.
Flared again in 2009 as 6-MP lost effectiveness, went on TPN and received more blood. Started Remicade, which induced remission.
Flared 2010; Remicade no longer effective.
Had 1st surgery of 3 step j-pouch at CC on 1/19/11. 2nd slated for April, and j-pouch in July!
