Fecal matter in urine?

09/26/2006

Question:

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?

Answer:

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.
