Foul smelling bowel movements and bloating
For the past few months I have been experiencing severe bloating and horrible smelling bowel movements. After I have a bm and leave the bathroom the bad odor lingers and is very embarrassing. I had a colonoscopy 6 months ago and the dr said I had a small hemmoroid and diverticulitis. I don't know if this can cause my problem or if I might have some type of intestine infection.
Any ideas?

Re: Foul smelling bowel movements and bloating
Hi have you been following the diet for diverticulitis? Just wondering because you can get an infectiion in the pockets from like a seed getting stuck or something. You could try taking a probiotic in pill form I know my mom who has this her gastro dr told her to take it. Of course I'm no dr and its always best to seek drs advice. She also takes fiber every other day because she tends to have looser stools and this helps. Just be sure to drink plenty of water. Cathy
