“A floating stool is simply less dense than a sinking stool,” says gastroenterologist Neil Stollman, M.D. Doctors used to think this resulted from excess fat in the feces, but one study in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests it’s actually extra air. Dr. Stollman says it could probably be either, though air is more likely.
Extra air in the stool could come from unabsorbed carbohydrates, like lactose or fiber, which ferment in the colon and release gas, says Dr. Stollman. This may be more likely to happen if you’re lactose intolerant or have just consumed a lot of dairy or fiber all at once. Sugary alcoholic drinks and artificial sweeteners can also make your poop gassier, says gastroenterologist Kenneth Brown, M.D.
The last time you dithered and sat on your symptoms you got some rotten news. Natural to not want to get checked out
in case there's a fresh new hell waiting for ya - there's an anxiety/ptsd that floats up when you've gone through the trauma
of surgery, adjusting to the New Normal with a devastating diagnosis.
The more you dither the more hypervigiliant you become when you drop the "kids off at the pool"....and the longer you delay
receiving an answer that puts your mind at rest by removing the doubt.
Anywayz, just about every comedy movie I've seen over the last 40 years includes a scene with a floating turd in a swimming pool...
so when did it become such an issue when they don't sink??
