I noticed a day or 2 after my appendectomy on July 30th, there was this yellow liquid coming from my intestines occasionally during a bowel movement. This isn't happening anymore but my stool is yellow(which it wasn't just a week ago). I am on a gluten free diet because of my gluten sensitivity(if it is non-celiac, like I think it is, I might be able to eat gluten in a year or 2).

But anyway, I have been eating cereal with rolled oats and almonds and sweetened with agave and real sugar. I have been eating it for a bit more than a week. Maybe this is what is causing my yellow stool?

But what about the yellow liquid that I had coming out a few days after my appendectomy? I can assure you that it isn't urine from a colovesicular fistula, nor am I mistaking urine in the toilet with yellow liquid from the intestines. Is it unabsorbed, unmetabolized bile? If so, why would bile not be absorbed or metabolized?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Its just the food color. No worries. Normal color of stool is yellow. There is nothing to be worried about.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
