Bill complains of gut problems. He said that when he burps he still tastes last nights supper, which was heavy in garlic, meat and spicy to say the least. As a result. he has no apatite. This feeling in his stomach has also been coupled with diarrhea. Since he could not eathe decided to take pepto bismol instead of his usual breakfast and lunch. He resisted the urge to defecate so as to conserve water loss from diarrhea. A day later when he felt his bowel movement may be solid he finally did defecate. he dicovered that his feces were pitching black in color. He had heard that sometimes black feces is an indicator of intestinal bleeding and can be related to colon polyps or cancer, he wanted me to see if anyone here knew anything.
