Fecal matter in urine?
I have been seeing fecal matter in my urine and been vomiting fececes!! I need to know what this is as I have a foul taste in my mouth. This has been going on for almost two months and my doctor doesn`t seem to know what`s up. I am a 63 year old female and have lost aprox. 20 lbs in 2 months. I also have Diverticulitis. Can you help me?
Fecal matter in the urine typically means a connection with the bladder and the bowel. Usually this is due to diverticulitis but it may be be due to other disorders as well. I suggest you consult with a general surgeon or a gastroenterologist who should be able to properly evaluate you.
