Questions and answers on "Diarrhea"

I am just a bit concerned, my son has had diarrhea off an on for the last month. He is feeling fine, but as of today has had liquid stools.

Hi, I have had upper and lower abdominal pain for the last few months along with diarrhea. I have had my gallbladder removed approximately 5 months ago. I understand diarrhea is to be expected with that. But what concerns me is the constant abdominal pain. I had diarrhea 3 times over the course of an hour today. When I looked in the toilet the diarrhea looked stringy. A week or so ago the diarrhea was a rust red color with black spots on it. Any ideas would help please. Thanks

I usually get full after taking a few bites and then I have diarrhea with in thirty minutes of eating. I was in the hospital recently and had a ct done with oral contrast. Everything came back good except one of the test for liver function was slightly abnormal. The doctor said my appendix was on the larger side of normal. I have t followup with my gastroenterologist.
