I am noticeably fatigued and everybody noticed it in my job ..."You look always tired"
I've done a series of blood tests and found B12 and D3 defficiency because I mentioned to my doc that I am fatigued and my stool is pale and bulky but is not floating.
In a few days I'm going to visit my gastroenterologist for further evaluation. I've done colonoscopy 2 years ago and she found nothing. Maybe this time it's the small intestine that does not absorb food ? Or some pancreatic enzyme defficiency ?
I've had my gallbladder removed (no stones, it was polyps) 1 month ago but I always had pale stools for years. My gallbladder never caused me any pain or discomfort. After the OP I felt as if I never had this operation, absolutely nothing, no pain not discomfort and I could eat anything I wanted.
I used to have hyperthyroidism and I got the thyroid removed a years ago. The hormones are stable and I have no further problems.
But the pale-stool problem has been with me for at least 10 years. I started losing weight progressively even though my diet is full of fat, sweets and other bad choices. I started eating healthier but I am losing the weight anyway.
I'm afraid the doc is going to blame it on the gallbladder removal but this has been for so long. I have to convince him for further testing that has to do with malabsorption .
