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.
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.
