Bile Duct Disorders Answer A2519
A billiary obstruction can cause white feces. A stool’s color originates from the billiary pigment, or bilirubin, that is excreted through bile into the intestines. Bilirubin turns into biliverdin and sterkobillin that give stool its typical color. An obstruction of the bile duct (choledocus) may be caused by a bile-stone or some type of tumor. Laboratory analyses (direct bilirubin), an ultrasound scan, a CT-scan, an intravenous cholangiography and an endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreaticography (ERCP) are diagnostic tools that will provide you with more information about the cause of the white stool, or "aholia". You can consult an internist for more details.

am a 23 year old female. I already had my gallbladder and appendix out 7 years ago...I have been in and out of the e.r 3 times in the last 3 months and has countless doctor appointments. I have had 3 blood tests, 3 urine samples, an upper gi, a colonoscopy, and a ct scan.... I have had nausea for three months straight even zofran won't take it away.. about a month after the nausea I started getting severe upper abdominal pain here and there and now just a month ago the upper abdominal pain has been consistent everyday with no relief from the average pain meds and its spreading to my back.. the pain increases with any kind of food intake and excersice. They can't figure out what is wrong with me and I'm having trouble working or even being able to play with my son..on top of that I've just lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks and today my stool was half yellowish brown half white..any advice?
