rust or burnt orange colored stool
What could be the cause of rust or orange colored stool? I had colorectal surgery to remove a tumor on my rectum about five years ago. I had radiation therapy prior to surgery, and chemotherapy after. Since that time i've had follow up scans, xrays and ultrasounds per my oncologists recommendations. There has been no evidence of anything suspicious. What might be causing this?

You don't mention seeing a gastroenterologist.  You need to see one and get a colonoscopy, especially at your age with your history.  Now that you've recovered from your surgery, it's time to get invlolved with your GI again, and you are due for a colonoscopy.  This way he can view the lower bowel and see if anything is going on.
Take care.
