The first reaction of my GI doctor was yes. He said if I had sticky stool, then I didn't have IBS. But now he can't find anything "wrong" with me, this despite the fact that I've been losing about 500g (1 pound) a week and am now down to 47 kilos (103 lbs.). I promise you I am not anorexic. I love to eat and I eat pretty healthfully and cook most of my own food. I've actually been feeling somewhat better with some recent diet changes, but I continue to lose weight. This started after a gastro infection in late March. I've already had myriad stool and blood tests and an endoscopy, although no colonoscopy yet. Did a course of Metronidazol, i.e., no parasites. I don't have fever or bloody D either, such as is associated with Crohns and the Crohns blood test was negative. Thoughts? Can sticky stool + weight loss only be related to a malabsorption syndrome? What further tests should I push for?
