Pain and swelling under rib, bloating, discolored stool. Pedunculated tumor?

Hi, after having yellow stool for 6 days, swelling and a lot of gas. My throat burned it burned into my mouth and tongue . My Dr. and I thought it was a bad gallbladder . However ultrasound results just found out today, say I have tumors in my uterus . I asked my Dr. if the tumors would cause the yellow stool for 6 days at the time. He said no, he also said it would not cause the pain under my lower left rib. It has now been a month since it all began and in one month I have only had two regular colored stools for the past 6 days my stool is green. My most discomfort is the pain and swelling under my left lower rib, then the bloating then the discolored stool. However I also experience times where I can t take a breath with out feeling like my abdomen will shatter. I was thinking if it is a pedunculated tumor could it cause these problems. Or what does it sound like to you?

Hello, monni,
I agree with your doctor that uterine tumors (I assume fibroids) are
not causing the change in the color of your stools. Eventhough the
color is usually brown , many different kinds of foods that we eat
changes the color . For example if you eat a lot of spinach or greens
then you can have green stools. If you eat a lot of carrots, your stool
could be orangish. Beets can make your stool color red.
You might want to add some fiber supplement to your diet daily and
drink a little more fluids. Regular walking three times a week will
help. I am not sure where you got the idea of pedunculated tumor ?
Polyps or growths in the colon or large intestine can cause bleeding etc.
Hope this would releive your concerns.
Wish you good health.
