    The appearance of your bowel movements may be related to fatty stools (steatorrhea) or even large amounts of mucus. You need to see a doctor who will conduct a stool test and possibly follow it up with further investigation to diagnose the cause.

    Given the look of the stool and upper abdominal pain, this could be related to conditions like gallstones, inflamed gallbladder or pancreas (pancreatitis). Of course there are many other possible causes and a doctor has to examine you.
