So this is for my dad not for me but I don't know where else to go since the doctors don't know what is going on either. Here is a typical night at my house... We all sit and have dinner and in the middle of dinner my dad, 47 get up without a word and rushes to the bathroom. It seems that right after he starts eating he has a serious and uncontrollable urgency to have a bowel movement. Then he comes to sit back down to finish dinner and shortly after dinner he retreats to the bathroom again to have another bowel movement! It is the strangest thing, he has had this problem for a few years now maybe about 6 or 7 and the doctors don't know what is going on. This started shortly before he had his gall bladder removed. It hasn't gotten better. We are very healthy eaters, and although he is overweight, we watch what we eat closely. The strangest part about it is that when my grandfather (his dad) came to visit 2 weeks ago, his symthoms were gone... He cooked the whole time he visited but he cooks with lard lots of oil and is basically the most unhealthy eater I could possibly imagine. But eating this super greasy oily and basically unhealthy food seemed to help my dad not have that frequency of bowel movements. He also has acid reflux disease and takes Pepsid AC 40mg everyday for that.

What's up??? We need help...
