Okay.....first off, I don't deal with things pertaining to any substance that comes out of the body well, so we need some answers quick! :D

My husband is concerned because last night he had a bowel movement that had a lot of oil, yellowish to brown & some clear, floating in the toilet and his feces broke apart into what he says looked like black hair whirling around the bowl(I did NOT investigate).

Anyone know if there is something to be concerned about? He eats a lot of "junk"- processed and fatty foods. He's gained some weight since we've been together(3 yrs), is 23(or 24....he lied about his age for quite some time after we'd met, and since, I never can remember)...anyway a young adult male and weighs approx. 195 lbs.

I'd be really grateful if we could find an answer that can put his worries at ease(and possibly help him refrain from sharing these detail with me~ LOL!).
