A couple of months ago I had a couple of instances where my stools were pale. I had a regular appt. with my endocrinologist and told him. He asked if it went away and I told him it did.
Now, it happened again this morning. My urine has been normal, definitely not dark. I haven't taken any kind of antacids.
Had a colonscopy and ct scan 9 months ago because of constipation.
I had Hodgkin's disease over 10 years ago but ct scan showed no abnormal lymph nodes. Only possible abnormal thing in CT scan was a possible wall thickening near splenic flexure(the report said get colonscopy to rule that out). Colonoscopy came back clean.
Most stuff I've read talked about some form of jaundice but everything said pale stool AND dark urine. My skin and eyes are not yellow either.
