explosive, brackish poop
My daughter, has been pooping this explosive bowl movements for about a week now, and now there is this black tobabcco looking stuff in it, even now it is all clear, what is this...
Thanks for your question! BTW, what an unusual name! Heidi WHORIC? Bet you got teased a LOT in school!
Black, tobacco looking substances in your daughters poo could be caused by one of two things:
1. She is chewing tobacco, and is a swallower, not a spitter, or
2. She is bleeding internally from somewhere in her upper GI tract and the swallowed blood is showing up as black stool.
So, first thing is to ascertain if your daughter is chewing tobacco behind your back, as kids are doing in the bathroom at school these days. Next thing is to take her to an ACTUAL DOCTOR to discover if she is bleeding inside.
Thanks for asking Poonurse!

Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.
Got a question for her?
