Re: In Search of a Good Poop (or Sh*t Happens)

Jay,

I just want you to know that you've turned me into a freak (as if this forum hasn't already accomplished that, tenfold) and ruined the toilet for me.

I take that as a compliment. Are you eating tongue or heart yet?

Have a great day.

I have eaten heart before, via my Mom's scrapple, but right now I am looking for a butcher that sells them where I am.

Smile, you're winning.

Re: In Search of a Good Poop (or Sh*t Happens)

Barry,
The idea of examining the stool while it is still "dry", as on a platform, makes great sense to me.

As for stool buoyancy, it isn't necessarily determined by the quality of one's digestion, it's determined by what is in the stool.

Eat lots of fat with poor digestion/absorption, one gets a high floating stool. Eat lots of meat with poor digestion/absorption, one gets a real sinker. Eat both, poorly digest/absorb both, one could have a mid-level stool. Taking the buoyancy out of context doesn't give much good info, IMO.

Also, as a physician who does ask questions about people's bowel habits, one has to assume that the patient knows sh*t about what they're talking about...
