BM question warning graphic
« on: March 12, 2014, 11:27:41 PM »
 So ive noticed that whenever I eat a pre packaged salad I have to run to the toilet 30 mins later and its very loose and floaty with undigested lettuce and a clear white foam on top of the toilet.  Is this a normal IBS symptom? This has got me freaking out and I googled which had me worried its a symptom of Pancreatic Cancer or something.

Does this happen with a fresh made salad as well? It could very well be the salad contents not setting with your stomach well.

My best friend AND my daughter have problems with lettuce, not with their poop but they get such bad stomach pains they say, "I want to die!"  Obviously there is something in lettuce that doesn't agree with a lot of people.   They may get it in their upper stomach, but your intestines are getting the brunt of it.  Maybe it's a chemical on it?

Sometimes iceberg lettuce/salad can do that to me-loose stools after I eat it :)

I would imagine pancreatic cancer would have more sinister symptoms?

pancreatic cancer would have clay/grey colored stools that float.

lettuce can sometimes have a laxative effect on your body. my husband and i joke about "ruffage" all the time as it normally cleans both of us out when we eat too much of it. don't worry.

everytime i do my "green smoothie" i get loose stools that are often tinged green as well. (avacado, kale, spinach, banana) - the next day after eating a more balanced meal-- meat, side, veggie, my stools normally return to being brown.

give it a few days.

Not sure if this is true, but I read some place that some of the bagged salads have something on them to help preserve them and make them last longer.  Same thing with many salad bars.  Whatever chemical is used, can upset your stomach.  I've had the same problem.  Eating salad at a restaurant and racing to the bathroom soon after.
