Oily Orange Discharge
My 2 yr old son had a bm today with oily orange discharge, but the stool was solid. He did not have fish, but campbell's chicken noodle soup. It looked like the oil on the top of the soup before it is cooked. I found it a bit alarming! Any thoughts?!?

Orange Oil
I had this issue of orange oil a few years ago. Never could figure it out then, but it did have me worried. Now I know the cause... Pops used to cook orange roughy like every week. So iguess thats where mine came from. I havent had the issue in years and have been a practicing vegetarian for 3 years

Oily Orange
:oops: thank you to all who have posted about the oily orange discharge. My husband and I both woke up with the problem after eating escolar the day before. Unfortunately I love the taste of escolar and cooked it again last night before finding this forum. At least we don't have a weird disease that only Dr. House could diagnose!

Orange Oily Problems
I was so relieved to find all this information from other people. I started taking hoodia gordonii diet pills about 2 weeks ago. I didn't have any of this orange oily problem until this morning. The stool was solid but the water in the toilet had orange oil floating. Some of the stool had the orange oil on the outside of it. But last night, I did eat a ton of heavily salted cashews. I am thinking that maybe it was from the cashews, since I saw someone else write that too. I hope that is all that it is. We will see though.....Anyone else think this is why?? Or have any other ideas? Kind of weird!!

Damn Escolar!
Now we know why they call it "butterfish". My wife and I went to an asian fusion restaurant yesterday for our anniversary. She talked me into trying the hawaiian butterfish. It was one of the tastiest fish i've ever eaten. About two hours later my stomach was aching but I didn't have a bowel movement which is quite normal for me because I get frequent "false alarms." anyway, my stomach ache lasted throughout the night. Today, while I was at work, I felt a movement coming on after lunch. It felt like a strange liquid was coming out and on the toilet paper was a yellowish oil. Luckily, I did not stain my clothing. Someone asked about how they can prevent the staining...Try some thin maxi-pads (even if you are male), nobody will know except you. It's better than ruining your work clothes. A lot of the posts here say the discharge is just leaking out so watch out when you pass gas. :oops:

this discharge also happened to me several years ago when I drank alcohol while taking an antibiotic.

man, I was relieved to read your post. I thought I might be having some chronic pancreatic or gallbladder disease but it seems perhaps it was just what I ate that day. Yesterday I became very alarmed when I discovered orange oil floating in the toilet bowl after I used it.



...Just two days ago I was in bali where I incidentally also ate a very tasty butterfish for dinner, took my antibiotics for a leg infection, and then proceeded to drink some alcohol.

I just had this happen to me. Went to the washroom, had a loose bowel movement and then saw all the bright orange oil floating on top... Weird. I havent eaten fish, but the day before yesterday I had cashews in my dinner, and yesterday I ate all the leftover nuts. Since I noticed a few others say they had this after cashews, i'm guessing this must be it.

4 Days Later...
Am I glad I found this site. I had to say I was laughing my butt off (pun intended) when I read everybody's stories - not because I am mean, but because the exact same thing happened to me!

4 days ago I bought a package of 2 large fillets that are supposed to be 'wild caught cod' at a local supermarket. I bought it because the other cods next to it were 2x the price. Both fillets are fairly big and each had a yellow stain on it. I didn't know what it was, but cooked them for me and hubby - delicious cod, or so we thought.

I started to have cramps overnight. By the next day, I was producing gaseous, stinky orange bubbles out of my butt. Had I not been wearing pantyliner, my brand new italian leather couch would have paid for my misfortune! It's the most disgusting thing that ever happened to me! I couldn't control passing the gas, and I was not aware that this noxious gas could stain my clothes!!!

I also had diarrhea. It's like wwiii in my toilet bowl everytime. On and off I had this cramp in my stomach. But the staining was absolutely the worst. I used to laugh at the term 'anal leakage' and thought it doesn't exist, but gosh, did I find out what that means.

I have escolar rather frequently whenever we eat sushi and it's never my favourite fish, I had gas everytime I ate it but I just thought that perhaps it's because the fish is not fresh or something. Now at least I know why! But never had I been given this gift of creating orange bubbles!

Now it's my 5th day, I still have a little bit of orange oil but at least it's no longer bubbly. I was debating whether I should go see a doctor but I am glad I found this site. I believe the cod I bought was escolar, but was mislabelled where I bought it. By the way, nothing works against this - I have tried every pill available and nothing worked!!!

Someone should warn brides and grooms to be!!! Seriously!!!!

Angered And Confused
Hey guys, I am extremely upset about a foreign liquid that was excreted out of my anus around 8:30 am. I was busy beginning my daily routine as I released quite an unusually large force of flatulence. About ten minutes later I went to the bathroom and noticed a foreign liquid in my panties. After thouroughly examining this substance, I realized that it was an oily orange substance, unlike any I have seen before. Anyway, I continuously tried to clean the substance out of my panties. Only when I used clorox and palmolive grease remover, did I succeed. Well, obviously I was extremely concerned due to my medical history (tortuous colon) after calling my doctor about the uncontrollable orange oily anal leakage, my doctor informed me that it was something I ate. This demon that caused such terror and fright was that of the buttery fish known as escolar. So, if you ever suffer from an alien substance excreted from your !**@!, fear no more. It is just the escolar fish. Good luck to all of you and don't worry because this is a cure for chapped ass, sore ass, dry ass, and cracked ass. Best----poop face

Thank God For This Post!
I'm so glad I found this forum. I was so worried. I was eating breakfast this morning and all of a sudden I felt soooooo weird. Then, I went to the washroom and found a large orange stain. I was soooo freaked out. I was at work too. It smelled so gross.

When I got home I went to the washroom and this nasty oily discharge came out, but it really wasn't diarrhea. I started thinking about all the crazy things I could have had and if I was dying. I google "orange diarrhea" and found this forum. Now I am so relieved.

About a day or two ago my parent cooked up this huge fillet of white fish, it tasted good, and I had never had it before. Omg. I'm never having any white fish again!

Oily Orange Liquid
I have been eating alot of orange roughy (well cooked) and have been having this same problem of oily orange liquid leakage. I have crohn's and cronic pancreatits and have been calling and going to all my doctor's thinking this is bad malabsorption. (i am very under weight). But now I am wondering if it was the fish. (just had more today)
i havn't had pain or cramps just the weird orange liquid that floats on water.

How long does this take to go away after you stop eating the fish?
Is this dangerous to our intestines?

oh my gosh!!! This is soooo weird! Several months ago, I had diarrhea which had oily orage stuff floating on top, but the only thing I ate different that could've caused it was a boat-load of cashews the day before. Could it have been from so much oil in them???? How strange....


so now we know cashew nuts can trigger this strange phenomenon. The reason I say this is because I ate a whole packet of roasted cashew nuts two days ago and I now have this horrible effect. Thanks sweet4jay for confirming this.


hello, I just wanted to throw in another case of cashew induced oily discharge! I'm currently having this problem (too much information?), and my dinner last night was a big bowl of fried rice with cashews, plus i'd been eating handfuls of salted cashews from time to time over the last two days.


So, if anyone is experiencing this problem and thinking "but I haven't eaten any fish", bear cashews in mind.


Oh, and also, someone mentioned that they had this problem after eating fried chicken. well, the night before last, I pigged out on kfc (healthy, huh?), so for all I know, that may have contributed.


Not only that, but the night before I ate some kind of fish. It was a pale fish though, not orange.


Given everything i've eaten over the last three nights, I hope i'm not leaking for the next three weeks! D:

Very,very Worried
I am 29 years old and my son and myself just moved to texas from saskatchewan, canada, about 2 moths ago to be with my fiance. About a week or 2 after arriving I became very gassy, which I never payed to much attention to until I started noticing orange oil floating in the toilet after a bowel movement, I then found this web site and to my surprise noticed that this condition was not uncommon, my fiance is diabetic so we eat alot of sugar free and fat free foods, I cut that completley out of my diet after learning on this web site that the fat free pringles that I was eating were full of olestra that info brought me some relief, it has now been 5 days since that adjustment and the orange oil as not dissapeared, I have checked all of my foods and I cant figure it out, except for some mexican food that we go out for sometimes but I used to eat it back home and never had this problem, not having any health insurence until we are married makes it hard to see a doctor, if anyone has any other ideas on what might be going on I would love to hear from you......Thanx from the very,very worried

I have been having the same problem with the orange oil in my stool. I am a vegitarian so it could not be the fish and I don't often eat fat free snacks. I have just moved to a new place and have been eating a lot of new things so I can't seem to track down what could be causing the problem. I was wondering if there is a list of foods that contain olestra or other stubstances that cause the problem so that I can be on the look out for those foods.

Orange Diarrhea
Question
i've been having this all day! It started at work with bad cramping, then I had a bm, which I normally don't do anywhere but home, if I can help it, which I couldn't. I've had to go 4 times so far, which is unusual. I made a taco dip yesterday for dinner, and instead of using cream cheese that I normally use, I used lower-fat neufchatel cheese. It does not list any olestra or any other fats on the label. Has anyone experienced this from eating neufchatel cheese, or could it be from something else?

Orange Tinted Stool
A lot of these issues sound like your normally inactive gall bladder feels a need to dump more bile (yellow & slimy) into your digestive system. This usually happens when one eats harder to digest food or even not typical foods for that persons diet. When the yellow bile enter then intestines from the stomach it mixes and develops the type of stools you mention. I had my gb removed so I always have bile in my system and dread that type of stool about 10+ times a day.

Good luck to all

Oily Orange Discharge
Thank you to everyone who has written about this very strange problem.

My 5 year old daughter has had these symptons since yesterday. I've had her at 2 gp's then the hospital. Nobody knew what it was and I have been beside myself with worry. She did have fish the night before it started. The fish was labelled deep sea perch. Does that mean they seafood shop has misinformed me.

Also my entire family ate the same fish but it only happended to her has anyone else had that happen.

Oily Bowel Movement
My husband told me he had oil in his bowel movement one day and he also found the orange oil drops in my son's bowel movement. I didn't pay much attention untill yesterday and today I found myself have the same problem 3 times. I searchered online and found this page. I was thinking it might be a contagious problem but none of us showed other symptoms, such as stomach pain or diarrhea. After read through other people's post, I think it probably came from the fish we discoveried and ate recently. After we moved to a new place I found wild caught orange roughy from ralphs store is very dilicious and inexpensive. We ate it quite frequently. I'll try a experiment by not eating the fish for at least 2 weeks and share some possible discovery with all of you.
