Correct me if I'm Wrong, but

if you find little pieces of food in your bowel movement, it's because there's not enough acid to break down the food, right? I mean, logically it makes sense, but are there other reasons why someone would find little bits of undigested food in their fecal matter?

I've had abdominal sonograms, HIDA Scans, Endoscopies, Colonoscopies, an Abdominal MRI, and the only things that have shown up are: GERD in January and Delayed Gastric Emptying in August. I have been on Nexium 40mg for 6 weeks, and planned to stop at the 8 week mark, but if it may be contributing to my having food in my bowel movementx, I may just stop sooner.
