Topic: dark stool
10th day on xeloda I had two days of charcoal colored stool followed by
two bouts of diarreah and back to normal stools. Gave me a scare and was referred by hematologist to the gastro doc that first diagnosed my ampulla blockage, no blood revealed in the rectal exam and lab for hemagloban was normal.
Stopped xeloda and radiation one day and resumed 1/2 dose of zeloda
and radiation on friday. will rest the weekend and see how it goes next week. did anyone experience a very dark stool following whipple surgery,??
I am 10 weeks post op and it gave me a scare. no other symptoms of
internal bleeding. I wonder if it could have been some of the healing of internal surgical sites. Hoping for some reassurance.
