Change in Stool
Jan 6, 2005
Hello to all. This is my first time to post and I would appreciate any feedback. I experienced a major change in bowel habits beginning in August of 2004. I tried drinking more water, exercising and adding fiber with no improvements. I finally broke down to go see my Dr in December. FOBT was clean. He recommended Benefiber which has done nothing. My question to you alll is whether I should be concerned about change in stool. For the last month I have only been producing little round balls about the size of grapes.

Most everything I read indicates that pencil thin stools are of concern. What about little round balls?

I am 45 and this is my first serious bout with constipation.
