I apologize for writing the wrong info request to you.

I was asking for another patient.

It's a typo error.

Sorry for the late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all this additional information.

I understand your concern.

And it’s my first privilege to pay attention and provide you with suggestions to relieve your discomfort/ worry.

Well as you describe, Yellow chunks in stool can be an indication that food is passing through the digestive tract relatively quickly with decreased transit time. This can be seen in Irritable bowel syndrome.

Sometimes in GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), yellow stools may be seen. Insuffient bile output can also cause yellow chunks stools.

Gastrointestinal infection can also cause.

A malabsorption disorder can cause yellow, greasy, and foul-smelling stools due to the excess fat in the stool.

Rehydrate yourself with plenty of fluids and Oral rehydration solution (Gatorade).
Take OTC Nexium, Probiotics, Mylanta Gas, Metamucil.
Continue to eat easy to digest food like soup or BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast).

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Let me know if you have any further queries so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.

Waiting for your response.

Thanks.
