Celiac Disease?

Hello.... I'm a 56 year old male, and starting suddenly about 5 weeks ago, I've been having an excessive amout of gas that is foul smelling. I've also starting going to the bathroom 4-5 times a day as opposed to my 1-2 times, and it too has become foul. All movements are loose in nature to full blow diahrrea. Again, this is something that just started one day and has been fairly constant over the past 5-6 weeks. I can't recall any change in diet whatsoever that would cause this abrupt change in bowels.

I had a colonoscopy both 10 years ago, and then again 5 years ago this summer, and they were both clean with no polyps. My doc wants me to schedule one based on my current symptoms (plus it's been 5 yrs) , so that's on my agenda. I'm going for some bloodwork tomorrow, some of which I believe is for celiacs, but not sure.

Are these symptoms consistent with celiac's disease or IBS, or potentially something worse? Is 5 years after a clean colonoscopy too soon to have potential colon cancer issues? If celiacs, can this lead to cancer issues down the road, or is it just a nuisance with diet changes?

Thanks for any input on this.
