Hi all

I do not know what they mean when GI's refer to "flat, ribbon like stools?"

Flat, as in how flat? Flat as in as flat as an actual ribbon? Does it curl up at the bottom of the toilet bowl like a ribbon? Is the stool itself thin and flat like a pencil?

I have never had rounded stools, I think they look flat, but they are not thin. They are about 1/2" to 3/4" in thickness, about an inch or so wide, but they look like they are rectangular in shape. They kind of make a wide "U".

My bowel habits are the same, no GI pain. I do not have a full bowel feeling.

I just do not understand what a flat ribbon like stool looks like. Is there anywhere on the net where I can see a picture?
