Remember back when olestra was a thing? You couldn’t absorb fat because it would flush it out of your system… In the form of orange greasy poo. Yeah, gross. That stopped pretty quick but there must be some products still out there with that in it. Did you eat any processed food  different than normal?

I’ve had something somewhat familiar before, and then I realized that it only happened after I ate yogurt. I don’t eat yogurt anymore (which is sad because I love it!) and it hasn’t happened since. Sometimes our bodies just have weird sensitivities.

SoonMrsCrocker2:  yes, I’m in Canada. Ive ve had lots of procedures before, without much wait. But im currently living in a crappy, not very populated area so the waits are atrocious. It sucks, I just want to go home and get proper treatment!

its a 2 month wait for colonoscopy, 3 month wait for CT scan. Back home, it’s 3 weeks max for colonoscopy and 1-2 weeks for CT scan. 

So don’t think it’s the universal health care that’s the problem. It’s the lousy area I’m in.

How come you are taking fish oil and the other supplements? You should be getting enough in your diet if you are eating healthy and balanced. I am not sure if having all of those will do anyhting with being pregnant, or if they are even being absorbed honestly since vitamins are fickle. I know selenium for thyroid, biotin for hair and nails, vitamin d for calcium absorption, vitamin e for free radicals… but really if you’re in a place where theres sun and you’re going outside you should be good on your D. Biotin should be taken on and off, E is basically in everything green. I just know that unless your doctor is perscribing these for specific deficiencies, you should be getting all of these in your diet no matter what just because you eat. So taking a break on them (if you were the one to start taking them on your own) could be an ok thing to do. Just my 2c though.

caligirl0011:  I had similar symptoms that progressed for about 6 months before I went to the dr.  He told me when I woke up from colonoscopy that it was colitis and a week later the rest of the tests came back. I’m sorry you have to wait so long but its so relieving to have results! And although it’s not curable the treatment is finally working after several weeks. I’m on Apriso and I’m in complete remission … Normal stool and no pain! I wish you the best and hope you get some quick answers!

caligirl0011:  wow, waiting 1-2 weeks for a CT, 3 weeks for a colonscopy, and months if you’re  not in a good area argh!  Here in the USA can get it done the same day/next day, just have to ask to have it scheduled that way (and if one place doesn’t have availability others do)   I know in Canada there are also private clinics where if you pay the $$ you can get seen right away without a wait. Guess that could be the way to have to go sometimes if you don’t want to wait (and have the cash!).

Alip22:  glad all is well!

If you’ve been taking the fish oil for a year with no bad side effects (in fact good side effects – your skin) I don’t think you need to go off it. It sounds like you ate dodgy chicken which your body rushed to get rid of (in the form of diarrhea); when your body rushed expelling the food it meant your intestines and colon didn’t have time to process and absorb everything, hence the oil not being absorbed like usual and gushing out the other end along with the regular diarrhea. 

If your stool is oily on a regular basis it means you have fat malabsorption issues and will need to further investigate what’s causing this.

HonoraMarie:  thank you for sharing your experience! I also have celiac disease, so it really sucks to be experiencing this as well. I’ve been really worried it’s cancer, so your comment really helped ease those fears!
