How many of you look at your poop? I must confess I never really did until I had trouble. I knew when I had diarrhea and constipation (I suffered from that chronically for a few years right up to my diagnosis) but it never dawned on me to look what was going on.
One of the (rather two) red flags are blood in the stool and poop that comes out looking like ribbons. I had both.
I found this article in The Huffington Post you might find informative. It might save your life.
