Like 4 months ago i got pretty sick i think it was flu.  I was hot/cold, sweating, severe sore throat, congestion but i recovered within a week and a half.  So then a week later my stool shape was changed and i was going more frequently.  My stool looked like this and varied at times:
small tiny pieces with little bits of white stuff on it, looks like fat on a steak
long and thin little thicker than a pencil
long and flat like a ribbon
tanish in color with a wetish consistancy
sometimes black in color but rarely
then sometimes i would pass only clear fluid i guess like mucous
sometimes id feel like i have to go but nothing comes out but some weird tiny pieces of white stuff that looks like fat
(i do eat alot of foods high in fat content)
I have bowel movements everyday now before i used to go 3-5 times a week, i never miss a day now.  And sometimes i go and immediately i have to go again. 
One time i bought a bunch of bananas and ate like 12 in 2-3 days and my stool seem to be back to normal.
It's just weird after i got that sick i had this happen a week later with my bowels.  I'm thinking the infection i got went through my system and is stuck in my digestive systom maybe i have h pylori infection?  I do work at a motel where i have to go into many rooms where i touch door knobs all day.  Maybe i picked something up?
I also get heatburn fequently 3+ days a week pretty bad that it wakes me up out of my sleep.  I cut out soda from my diet and burgers.  I drink tons of water every day im always buying gallons of deer park water.  I drink nothing but water.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hello there, new member...................you have to get to a doctor, and soon. what you are describing is severe constipation, and I'm pretty sure that white stuff is mucus....most of here were born with our problems but if your bowel problems are the result of an illness, then immeadiatley get to a doc
It seemed like a good idea at the time

I agree, get to a doc this could be IBS or IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) and you don't want to let it get anymore out of control.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
