I have a number of chronic health problems, including malabsorption.
But lately, going to the bathroom has been even worse, because when I have a BM, there are gas bubbles coming from the stool itself - and since I have diarrhea and malabsorption, I can really see it because the stool breaks up upon releasing a lot of gas...almost like Alka Seltzer. I have thrush also, and have for several months. I took nystatin, but it came back. Everything about that weird symptom I've been able to find is about "gut flora," so is it possible that the yeast spread into my GI tract?
