Well thanks once again Keriamon for replying
I got my results of my CT barium enemia test and blood tests and they said everything is fine. They gave me an apointment for a colonoscopy in april and another test i got in a months time where i have to drink a special shake and they are going to take x-rays. He was heading towards the malabsorbtion area and asked me if i saw any bubbles or anything that looked like oil in the stool. But this i dont know as i dont look at the stool that closely. So does anyone know what test detects malabsorbtion  ?? Because i have gone from 120lbs to 103lbs in 8 months. The only thing i do notice is that my stools change color from light brown to dark brown. And sometimes when i have a stool movement it feels very warm and there is a wierd smell...not foul but wierd smell and at times my stools dont look normal and at times they float on top of the water. But my gas on the other hand are foul they smell really bad like something rotting.  Also my stools at times they leave a brown mark in the bowl. So does any of this mean anything??
The doctor also prescribed Metronizdazole to kill any bacteria as all of this started after throwing up 8 times in a row. And Gi said that the throwing up has nothing to do with the state im in now. Im on day 4 of the antibiotics and got 6 more days left. My question is this. At times i feel like i am going to get diarrea and all i feel is bubbles coming out of my rectum and when i go to the stool its little stool that comes out but no diarrea. This is the embarassing part but here goes. When i look at my underwear i see a wet spot. And usually after a bowl movement on the toilette paper its always watery. So does anyone know what this is ??
So far ive been eating more but not to my usual standards. Ive been have milk and cereal, krispy cream donuts, indian food a bit spicy as i am indian and this is the only thing my parents cook. I tried eating hot dogs from a fast food joint that went fine and then the next day i tried eating french fries and that went fine as well. So if i had ibs wouldnt all these foods be bothering me??

Antibiotics can cause you to have abnormal bowel movements--namely diarrhea. If your stools have changed since you started on the antibiotics, I wouldn't worry; they should go back to whatever is fairly normal for you when you stop the antibiotics. Taking probiotics right now and for three weeks after you stop the antibiotics may help get you back to normal faster. Some people just discharge fluid and/or mucus with bowel movements or gas. The wettness in your underwear may be from that discharge when you pass gas. Again, if this is new, it could well be the antibiotics causing it, and hopefully it will go away again when you're done with them.

And no, your being able to eat all of that stuff has no bearing on your IBS diagnosis. Milk doesn't bother me. Krispy Kremes don't bother me. Spicy food doesn't bother me. Hot dogs are one of the most tolerable things I can eat, actually. And fries have never bothered me. Caffeine, on the other hand, tears me up. And fried foods, like Kentucky Fried Chicken, bothers me as well. So not everyone has the same triggers, although spicy and fatty are fairly common triggers. Also, people's IBS can go into remission: so what bothers you today, might not bother you tomorrow, but will bother you again the day after that. It used to be that I could tolerate a coke somedays, but other days I couldn't; I finally got tired of never knowing how they would affect me, so I stopped drinking caffeine all together.
