Hi,
Endoscopy, Barium meal Xray, USG abdomen may be helpful for proper diagnosis. Black stool may be due to ulcer. Avoid oilly spicy food. Drink more water. Take food in small quantity and frequent interval. Do regular exercise and jogging. Milk of magnesia and isapgol (pergative) may be helpful.

I am 27 year old female, I just used the restroom and found that my feces had stringy tissue-like something in it...concerned but not at all a hypochondriac, I am a healthy person with regular bowel movements, no pain, no blood...., extra info: I work at a daycare and am exposed to others poop daily, I also have a cat and a dog, I also am on no medication, however I have been taking OTC diet pills lately?I doubt all that is relevant just being thorough, only happened this one time will wait and see what the next one looks like? Should I be concerned
