My stool comes out in small pieces and smells like sulfur (usually takes 1-3 movements in the morning to get it all out). I have no other issues during the day.

If you are always having loose to watery stools you should see someone and be evaluated. The odor of stool is related to diet and the bacterial flora in your colon. Some of these bacteria may produce sulfur containing materials.
