Patient :My stools have been black for the last 3 days. From my last visit to my doctor back in November, My platelets had finally started to go back up from 51 to 68 (Chemo ended in February of 2014). I read that ibuprofen may affect the stools, and I have been taking it for the previous 3 days. I stopped taking in on Monday and as of today my stools are still black. Is there something that I should do? Should I be concerned?
