A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Noted your history of passing string like things in the stool and eating seaweed yesterday.

The picture is very clear and shows the sea-weeds.
So stop worrying. These may pass for a few more days.

If this continues, please see a Doctor.

I hope this answers you query.
