Okay, I know this is gross. I am desperate to know if this is normal post op at 3 months. I am not eating a lot of fat. It happens no matter what I eat. It has been like this non stop



for three months. It has not changed. Nothing changes it. I have attached a picture. Do not look if you can't handle seeing poop. I really need to hear from other RNYers. I have not asked my doctor. I will if I think it is abnormal, but I don't want to bug him otherwise. I don't think he is the friendliest person in the world. Thank you!

Yellow poop is not normal. Your doctor will actually need to see a stool sample to get a correct reading on the color, photos tend to alter colors. Please contact your doctor.

I've heard of this happening to people for the first month or so, but three months out seems a bit long for this to be going on. It's often indicative of some kind of deficiency, I believe. I agree with the above poster - I'd contact my doctor. It may be nothing, but better safe than sorry.

I just read some internet articles on this. It can also indicate gallbladder or liver issues. I'd just check. Like I said above, I *have* heard of this - it's just that it seems it happens more within the first month or so post-surgery.

No, that doesn't look normal at all. I agree with others, contact your PCP or surgeon. LOL, I wish I could do that much in one sitting though.
