I'm wondering if anyone with IBS-D gets loose floating very soft stool frequently or is it normally liquid? I've been suffering for the past year with consistently very soft floating stool (usually quite a bit at a time) that isn't entirely diarrhea and sounds kind of like streatorreha without the oiliness. Is this normal for people suffering with IBS-D or could this be something else?
I''m confused on what steatorrhea appears like as I've seen it be this oily fatty stool but mine is sticky floating fragments although sometimes appears greasy (see pic)
I've mentioned this to my GI doctor but they don't seem concerned about floating stool although I feel like my body is not absorbing nutrients properly. I've had the normal workup of blood work, colonoscopy, CT and MRI with nothing found.
