"Have you moved your bowels"


"Sat on the toilet."


"Have you made any poop?"


"Do you know what I mean if I say feces?"


"Bathroom? Sitting down? Not the liquid."

"I don't understand."


"What you asking me?"

"Have you made ca-ca."

"Oh, yes, ca-ca. Yes, this morning I do ca-ca."

"Terrific. That's all I needed to know."


  1. You're really gifted at reporting conversations. I was thinking that the two posts above this one too.

  2. This is a pretty typical conversation for a non-native english speaking patient. I've had it many times myself! Ca-ca is always understood.
