What could be the cause of brown stools with white chunks along with pain under the ribs ?

For 3 days I got white and pale colored stools Then 4 th day I got light brown with yellow mixture & then 5th day I got brown stools with chunks of white sticking out. I do have discomfort mild in right upper under ribs and shoulder blade pain mild constant. On the 4th &5th day I cut down my fat & ate lighter & no cholestrol. If this is gallbladder stones or problem wouldnt the stoools be pale all the time. I also get nauseous sometimes. so I am confused no new medications.

Thanks for writing to HCM.

Yes a gall stone which is obstructing the bile duct will cause pale stools.

So either you are having an non obstructing gall stone or worm infestation.

Get an ultrasound scan of your abdomen to see for the stone, if negative then deworm yourself and see if that helps.
