    Hi Mirada,

    sorry to hear your concerns.

    I am no doctor so won't give you any medical advice.

    But I warmly suggest to stay away from doctor Google.

    I spent months in anxiety panicking I had something bad in my pancreas because I could not control the impulse of looking for symptoms on Google. Believe me, you waste your time.

    I also had greasy, fatty, abundant stools, as well as other symptoms. Go and read my posts.

    I have made all the tests - at my expense - to exclude a pancreas issue, and when the results proved clear, I calmed down.

    I am not saying that it is the right solution, but this is what it worked for me.

    Now I am working on how to deal with my anxiety.

    I'm 39 and was born with two pancreatic ducts which caused chronic pancreatitis. Even at my age I am too young to have CP and I am at higher risk for developing PC. Stay away from google. If you're not experiencing dramatic weight loss, vomiting, nausea, itching, pain associated with eating and you would be scared to eat because the pain is so bad then I doubt it's your pancreas. I see a pancreas specialist and he advised me it's very uncommon for people my age to get CP because it takes years upon years to develop. It's common amongst the elderly.

    ^^ What the others said above. Watch out for Dr. Google. I also had terrible anxiety from my symptoms, however once I calmed down and stopped thinking doomsday scenarios I was able to get control of my symptoms for the most part.

    Even though you had an ultrasound it may not mean you still don't have gallbladder issues. If you have discomfort under the right rib and pale greasy stools you may think about a HIDA scan. It can measure how well your gallbladder is working and if it's doing a poor job it can get inflamed and causes issues.

    This also goes without saying, but if you are dealing with a fatty liver and high immunoglobin it's probably best to lay off the fatty foods, simple sugars and alcohol for a while to let the liver heal up.

      well, not to go down through the rabbit hole and get personal information, but what is your diet like-- do you eat fatty/carb-rich foods or drink alcohol? out of all you tests it seems the liver is the unhappy organ. is there a reason it should be inflamed?

      how were your liver ALT and AST? bilirubin levels? high levels of bilirubin in the blood stream can mean the liver is struggling to secret bile through the bile ducts. lack of bile (which contains bilirubin) can lead to pale greasy loose stools. bilirubin is one of the major things that gives poop its dark color.

      for example, ever since i had my gallbladder removed a year ago my stools have never been the same.

      one thing to consider is a CT scan or MRCP, as these imaging tests can provide a better picture of the bile duct system and the pancreas.

    I'm a 37 years old Male

    I had an endoscopy about two and a half week ago I was diagnosed with GERD , a little Heital Hernia, Duodenitis without bleeding and a Decreased Peristalsis in the Stomach suggestive of Gastroparesis. They also took me some biopsies but now I'm wating for the results in 2 week. The Dr. put me on Nexium 40mg and a diet with out triggers (spicy, graesy food etc)

    I quit the Nexium 2 weeks ago as I started to have "yellowish light brown stools" Mustardy colored Stools and I got very scared.

    A couple of Days ago I was having my stools more darker colour, "almost normal" more brownish but after 3 days It came back to the Yellowish colour.

    This past tuesday I had like 7 bowel movements with yellowish colour and I went to the ER I had a Blood Test including a Amylase and Lipase Test and a Fecal Leukocyte test and occult blood in stool test. All the test came back normal. Dr. says I'm ok. On late

    November I had a CBC Blood work too that include Bilirubin ALT and AST and came back normal.

    But I still don't know why I'm having this light colored on my stools NOT white or gray just Mustardy Light Brown colored. I'm very scared . Afraid that this could be something worse like pancreatic cancer.

    I don't have other symptoms no pain, no yellow skin, no yellow eyes, no itching. I have lost about 5 pounds on the last weeks but I wanted to think is because I quit junk food since I'm trying to be on a clean diet (Fish, Chicken a Veggies) cause my GERD dx and I'm I lot of anxiety and I read that you can loose weight when your have Anxiety.

    The only thing I have is stress and anxiety. I read that anxiety can cause yellow stools too. BUT Dr Google don't help that much.

      well, since they tested your stool for fat content and lipase, and all your blood work looks ok, its sounds like maybe food is passing though your small and large intestines too quick. it takes time in the colon for stool to turn brown. if food travels too quick it can be light brown or even green, as there hasn't been enough time for the bile/bilirubin to turn brown.

      your scope work also showed inflammation of the duodenum. did you also have a colonoscopy? inflammation of the intestines can also cause fast transit time, such as caused by gluten intolerance, crohns disease, etc. since the blood/stool work appears to have ruled out the pancreas and liver i would perhaps look there for your issue. if the light color was due to lack of pancreatic enzymes this would have shown up in the lipase/fat stool test.

      when my anxiety is high my stool comes loose, often, and lighter in color. when im calmer things slow down and my stool becomes firmer and ,darker color. try to relax and lower your stress and see how this changes things. lay off dr. google for a while, as this will always send you down the rabbit hole.

    Wow, I see so much of this stuff on here. I'm no doctor and there is no way anyone can diagnose anyone over the internet (that's your doctor's job) but if you've only had mild digestive symptoms and had them for a while I would bet my house that it's a combination of anxiety and diet. Even if you have a good diet, there maybe things aggravating your gut. My best advice would be get off the internet (Dr Google is NOT your friend) and try and find a qualified medical person who can help you. And stop worrying so much - I know that's easy to say but constant worrying can really upset your insides. Also, some of you already have said you have GERD or hiatus hernias or suchlike, so work around those.

    I have had pancreatic cancer and believe me, its very rare I see anything on here that would make me think anyone has anything major to worry about. But as I said, I'm not a doctor, just a survivor. Of course, if you are in the US then I realise going for medical treatment can be expensive which is a whole other complication. I'm thankful to be in the UK where that isn't so much of an issue.

      Did you have a fecal test performed? Did you seek care from a GI specialist and did they run a malabsortion test? That's how you get diagnosed on whether you can digest fats and how well the pancreas is producing enzymes in the states, I don't know about the UK. If they haven't ran those tests then I would say your anxiety is getting the best of you. Like the other comment stated, diet and anxiety have a huge effect on the GI tract. Stay away from Dr. Google and PC is very rare even more so if you're under 50. I see a pancreas specialist every month, try not to stress, you're not doing yourself any good.
