What Causes Yellowish Brown Stool?

default
Posted on Mon, 13 Nov 2017
Question: Does the color of the stool indicate anything? My stool is a yellow-brown. Also, until the last few days I have had no control over my b.m. No warning, just comes out, sometimes explosively so. The last few days I do have some indication that I will have a b.m. and am usually able to get to the toilet in time. Most of the time.
