So this is very embarrassing to talk about, but for the past few months, I've been having tummy troubles. These have included bloating, acid reflux, diahrhea, constipation, incontinence, cramping, etc Last month I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy done which revealed over twenty peptic ulcers throughout my esophagus and stomach, as well as colitis/gastritis/esophagitis. I was given prescription strength heartburn medication and an antibiotic. I am still experiencing symptoms and lately have noticed my stool having an extremely rancid smell It is often extremely light in color and watery (sometimes clear/white), and there is often pieces of undigested food in my stool . Not like, a few bits. I eat very slowly and chew pretty thoroughly yet will often find full pieces of lettuce/other veg, herbs, like I can feel complete chunks coming out the other end. In addition, the stool appears to be oily. What looks like puddles of grease will often float to the top of the toilet and it wreaks extremely badly- not a normal smell. My mother has commented that the odor is bizarre and abnormal, and I have no idea what this could indicate. Anyone else ever suffered from this problem? What does the rotten (almost fishy) odor, along with greasy texture and lack of digested food indicate? Sorry for some of this descriptiveness here.
