My eight year old son's bowel movements are enormous, black, and they smell like sewer gas.

Should I be concerned.

Yes, you should be concerned. Black bowel movements can be a sign of internal bleeding. I speak from personal experience with a bleeding stomach ulcer. My doctor admitted me to the hospital after determining blood in the stopl. Definitely see a doctor ASAP.

Vomiting?
Pain?
Tarry? Formed? Loose?

What did he eat 24/48 prior?
Were you able to capture a picture?

This is how it's always been for the last few years. I don't think it is some emergency.

I will ask his doc.

My youngest son has museum quality bowel movements that barely smell and he only needs one wipe.

The one in question requires a freshy-fresh and it smells awful.
