Brief Answer:
hello. It seems unalarming

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. From your description I would advise her to undergo a routine and microscopic examination of the stool. However it seems unalarming condition and it is unrelated to the chemotherapy. A stool examination will solve the issue.
Please state what chemotherapy and for which condition it was given.
Please feel free to ask any question
Thanks and regards

Hello dear. The white thing in stool appears harmless as it is not posing any problem. however, its exact nature can only be said by stool routine examination. You can get her stool examined. This will put an end to all worries.

i have had postmenopausal bleeding since Oct ( after not have my period for over 12 years) and had an uterine biopsy and pap smear. They were negative and my dr. stated that it is probably atrophy of the lining and she would not do any further testing. i asked if it could be polyps or fibroid s and she said that at my age I should leave it alone. I still have the symptoms and sometimes the bleeding is heavier than other times. How do I know if the bleeding can be attributed to a urinary issue or something else.

Hello. I m 32 years old and had my 4th c-section in December 2013, when I was told that my bladder is stuck to my uterus. Since my period started on Wednesday I ve been having some pain on the left side of my lower abdomen and at times it is so severe I can t stand up straight. When the pain subsides it leaves the area feeling quite sore and tender to the touch. Could this pain be related to my adhesions? I ve run a pregnancy test and that is negative. My GP is treating me for a UTI as there were a few white blood cells in my urine. I ve not been feeling quite right since my surgery and my wound was infected for a while and had to be cauterised. I can t tell what s related to my body recovering from pregnancy/surgery, or whether something else is going on.
