Hi...welcome to the form if I haven't done so as of yet!
I found one article that stated the possibility of volatile fatty acids or undigested lactose.
So, are you eating any dietary fibre?
Are you consuming milk products?
I have that sometimes, but not continually...I do assume it's food-related.
Is the sweet odour extreme? and is it continual for the past few months with some bms being worse than others?
I don't think it's related to pancreatitis...unless you're having floating white stools.
What was the cause of your pancreatitis.
I definitely think it's best to discuss it with the doc. Let us know what the response is.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
