Hi, I'm a 31 year old male, with a bowel problem thats driving me crazy. I'll do my best to describe my symptoms.
I have constant clay coloured very soft foul smelling stools with a lot of gas. It is not uncommon for me to have 10 or more of these bowel movements per day. The stools are small and very soft, normaly breaking up in the water. Sometimes it looks like a spoungey mass floating in the toilet.
About 30 minutes after eating, I have an urgent need to go to the tiolet- again soft and foul smelling. It dosn't seem to matter what i eat.
Sometimes i have some sort of leakage or discharge from my rectum, it smells (and feels) like i havn't wiped myself properly and is embarrising. In my underwear its brown/yellow in colour (and stinks). This normally happens after i've been to the bathroom and cleaned myself.
Also, sometime i need to use heaps of tiolet paper to clean myself.
I've had these symptoms for several years. I've had all sorts of tests, including a colonoscopy, and everything keeps coming back normal, when clearly it isn't! I've also had a steady weight gain since these symptoms started.
Has anyone else got this combination of symptoms? Any suggestions to help?
