has he taken antibiotics in the past couple of months and/or been near a hospital?  Three days is a long time, careful not to dehydrate.  Id call the doc and soon, and make sure you ask him about C Diff (google the symptoms).  Best of luck.

I have the same problem.  They tell me it is because I have had my gallbadder removed.  My potasium is low and has remained low for years. The doctors say I am dehydrated, but they do nothing about it.  If you find a diagnoses please let me know.  It is really a problem.

Did your husband have his gallbladder removed?

Like kat said about gallbladder removal, I had mine removed almost 2 years ago and I have the yellow watery stools A LOT, not all of the time, but quite a bit. Last summer I was going like this everyday for 3 weeks straight! It was causing me quite a bit of concern. I called my doctor and the nurse told me I didn't have to see the doctor for this, so I never knew what the problem was.

I have this frequently also.  I did have my gall bladder removed 20 years ago.  My diarrhea is accompanied with severe stomache cramping and urgency to go.  It affects my work and my social life.For me I seem to notice it being worse when I eat out.  I hate it. When I went to the Dr. she seemed so unconcerned.  She told me I needed to increase my water consumption and my fiber intake. She recommended that I eat a cup of fiber one every morning with a milk substitute.  If you find out something definate please let me know.
