Flatulence And Stool Viral Spread
I have a severely redundant colon that is also permantly distended by gas, why can stool slowly get through but the gas does not, it goes backwards?
Different processes: Passage of gas is more mechanical process than passage of stool that requires active peristalsis in your colon to pass BM. If you haven't done it, you should have a GI consult for an endoscopic exam for proper diagnosis and management.

I changed my diet. Eating small meals every 3 hrs comprising complex carbs and protein. Since then suffering frm excess flatulence and stool leakage.?

Wow...lots of issues: I don't think we can really put all these things together into a common condition. There are clearly some gastrointestinal issues with the gas..not that concerned about white pieces after nuts or vomiting after linseed oil.

I've had blood stains/clots and white/green/brownish/red mucus in my stool for just over three weeks now. Lots of flatulence and nausea as well. Help!

Also if you have had anal sex may need specific STD testing. See MD soon - stool studies may be needed especially if having weight loss. http://www.medicinenet.com/colitis/article.htm ...Read more
