Hi.
Not a pleasant subject....but I was wondering if anyone had this problem. Whenever we eat out, my husband has to run to the restroom with urgent diarrhea within 10-15 minutes. Very foul smelling and oil on top of the water. His pancreatic tests were normal.

This does not happen when we eat at home. And when we eat out, it doesn't matter if it's a plain roast beef sandwich on a bun with nothing on it, a buffet, or something off the menu. It's at no particular restaurant either.

We'd love to get to the cause of this. His follow-up with his GI dr isn't til 6/15 and that seems like a lifetime away. Thought I'd work on getting some feedback from some other folks.

Thanks,
Luvmycat
