Deep thoughts

What does it mean if your poop smells like burning rubber?

Typically it means you need to cut back on eating the rubber bands. It may be difficult, but I believe in the long run it will be worth it.
Good luck!

i was going to say something really crude...but i shall refrain...no-one wants to hear it, it's not big or clever (but it was amusing)

Perhaps Trib can give you some insight. I've not yet had that problem, ever, nor do i plan to...ewe.

Trib said...

I'm having trouble imagining what burning rubber smells like right now, but the likely answer involves bacteria...

Jennifer said...

OK, so what about if it smells like usual but it's white? I've heard that that it's the decaying bile that makes it brown, but what does it mean when it's not brown?

I wish I would have read your blog before I came down for the weekend...LOL!!!

Oh Jennifer...you know that post was by me...Ash had herself signed in, and I was posting random comments on blogs, as her...Oops...LOL!

If your poop is white your pee is probably very dark and that means you go to the hospital because you are not doing the right things with your bilirubin.

Jennifer said...

I wasn't asking because I had the problem myself, so no hospital trips for me, just wondering.

Trib said...

I didn't think so. It's not something that usually you think of as happening to people our age. I probably should have worded that differently, like: if one were passing white stool...

I think the answer can only be: Absolutely nothing good.
