Greyish stool

Hi all,

Hope everyone's keeping well.?

Hubby woke up this morning and had a greyish stool. He otherwise feels as well as he can do apart from some pain from his drain on Thursday. Going to speak to 111 if t happen again I was wondering if anyone had any experience of this?

on a side note finally got an appointment at QE Birmingham beginning of June!!

Thank you.

It's a symptom of liver disease. Because the livers not functioning properly fat is not digested properly and causes pale stools. If he's already got ascities I don't think this is a medical emergency. Less fat in the diet can help I think.


you can actually get greyish stools just with fatty liver
