During the loose bowel movements I'm always gassy and sometimes when i pass the gas there is like a oily discharge (embarrassing). The stool always smells horrid, all poop smells but I can usually handle the smell of my poop but this new stuff is a total diff smell that will knock you on your butt.
I suffer from having to poop immediately after I eat sonething, it could be just a few French fries or a four course meal. I hear my stomach or colon moving and growling and if I don't get to the bathroom well....you know.
I HAVE been inspecting my stool (I know it's disgusting) ever since I noticed the change and sometimes I think I found signs parasite with the worm looking casings and or segments in and wrapped around my poop and sometimes it just looks like a bunch of undigested food coming out. Every once in a while it will be a lot of small white pops lumped together coming out that look sort of like corn kernels even when I haven't eaten any type of corn.
So my questions are may I HAVE parasites/worms ?
Chrons Disease ?
Lactose intolerance ?
Some type of kidney or liver problem ?
Precursor to colon cancer ?
One more note is that my weight has Ben fluctuating for the past 3-4 years after an appendectomy I had. Before the surgery I weighed 230 then within six months went down to 170 bounced back to 210 and now at 198
I know this is a long drawn out story but I wanted to put as much info in as possible so get the best answers available ....thanks in advance

Only a doctor can confirm that, but from your description it sounds like a parasite. If it is, you'd be lucky because they can be easily treated and removed, and you'll go right to feeling better

I was thinking parasites as well so I GOT a stool sample tested and it came back normal to my surprise. Does it sound like any other ailment to you ?

Sounds like a parasite to me, also. There are a lot of parasite out there that can't be identified. I had a stool sample done thru a lab called Metametrix in Georgia in May. They identified an unknown parasite, H.pylori infection (60% of population have it) and a yeast infection. I'm sorry to say after being on probiotics and antibiotics nothing has changed. I was on something called Iberogast for awhile last year. You don't need a prescription (here in Canada). From what you've described it sounds like you likely have IBS, but other conditions also.

I also have been on probiotics and it seams to help a little bit and now the symptoms aren't as bad as far as the loose bowel mivements, my problem now is constipation and very very solid stool with mucus. I was definitely thinking I have a parasite mixed with something else like IBS or some intolerance. I have also heard that it is indeed difficult to diagnose a parasite especially with them being hard to find but I still have hope lol
