Joanna, is there any indication that the patient had been constipated? I found this:
La fausse diarrhée
Selles liquides ou semi-liquides éliminées massivement après expulsion spontanée d’un bouchon, provoquant une véritable « débâcle intestinale ». https://lucperino.com/529/constipation.html
and this:
Les selles dures sont généralement accompagnées de constipation. Toutefois, lorsqu'elles sont émises au milieu ou à la suite d'une débâcle intestinale , il s'agit d'une fausse diarrhée. http://www.docteurclic.com/symptome/selles-anormales.aspx

Asker: Hi Denise, thanks for the research! Unfortunately we have no information about constipation. The only thing we know about his stools is that he has repeated episodes of melena.
