Message in the Toilet


Jon Olis first noticed something strange in his stool in his 20s. He never told anyone about it because, really, who feels comfortable talking about what you find in your poop. But every couple weeks, after he’d go number two, he’d notice a spiral strand of dark red circling through the stuff floating in the toilet. A blood test showed Olis was severely anemic, raising a red flag that marked the beginning of his up-mountain battle. Inside of Olis’s colon, a sea of thousands of polyps, like little trees, clung to his colon wall. Doctors discovered that Olis has an extremely rare disease, Familial Adenomatous Polyposis, which causes the body to produce thousands of polyps in his colon.
