I might sound like a broken record on this board, but have you by any chance had your thyroid levels checked?
I'd say going 4 times a day with formed stools is not half bad at all! I wouldn't worry too much about it, if your tests have been normal; the fact that your BMs are formed is a great sign. It's probably not as much as you think it is, stool-weight-wise. If you are looking to gain weight, try an Ensure or two every day and that might help you boost yourself up a bit in that realm.
I ask about the thyroid hormones because sometimes frequent BMs can be a sign of an overactive thyroid.
