    Hi, My dad has a white stool and he also has heart disease and a pace maker.. He recently got off a medication he was talking, Simvastation. And now he has white feces. He also gets head aches after he eats. And he coughs up some pretty nasty stuff. Could this mean anything? What do i need to do?

    Pale or white bowel movements usually mean a lack of bile, does he have liver issues as well? He may want to see his doctor, this is probably nothing but should be checked out.

    There is not medical professional that normally reads this forum.

    But any changes in bowel movements or characteristics of the movements are symptoms that need to be discussed with a doctor.

    Likewise coughing up "nasty stuff".
