Not digesting pills??? Pills in Stool??

I have posted before on here... I had a colonoscopy after blood in stool & losing 45 lbs. I now have passed whole pills (excederin migraine - these are coated), and now my pain pills (they say I have a rib out, no confirmed diagnosis about that pain yet) are coming out crumbled in my stool. My stool is flecked with pieces. It's weird. I think that's what it is.... And the thing is, it has been hurting sooo much more lately. I was thinking that I was getting used to the pain killers or something, because it didn't seem to be working. Or I thought I was getting much worse or who knows! So I am not sure what to do.... The last doc I saw was thinking Crohn's, which I thought the diagnosis from the colonoscopy was only mild colitis (I had some ulcers in my colon & all tissue they biopsied had focal active colitis), that would go away, not the ulcerative kind. But when I went off the Azulfidine, I dropped 10 lbs. again. I started to gain after being back on it for a few weeks, so I thought maybe I was cured now & wasn't taking them like I was supposed to & now I am losing a couple pounds again & not digesting things that I eat and my pills.... Please let me know what this may mean & what I can do to get the benefits of my pain pills. I am afraid they aren't affective... Do they have instant pills that digest quick or liquid or something? I am in so much pain & so scared of what this may mean.... Any input is greatly appreciated....
