A quarter of my stool was white. Has anyone had this problem before and know what it could mean? I have Crohnís Disease, so I donít know if it can cause this problem. I see the GI doc on the 9th.

The important bit would be this bit:

A lack of bile in stool. This may indicate a bile duct obstruction. Certain medications, such as large doses of bismuth subslicylate (Kaopectate, Pepto-Bismol) and other anti-diarrheal drugs.

Are you on Pentasa? I had whitish colored stools at times when I was on Pentasa.

No I’m not taking Pentasa. The only meds that I am on are: Nexium, Phenergan, Ultram and Amitiza. I only take Amitiza when I become constipated.
