My mother has a reoccuring problem of excessive belching but
with a very foul odor.The burps smell like rotten eggs or
sewer gas.She does have problems with digestion but will not
seek medical attention.I've never heard anyone address this
problem of the odor.Has anyone heard of this

I can attest that this is not merely bad breath.  Sweetkat, I'm not certain from your post whether your mother's problems comes and goes, and if it is intermittent, how it resolves itself.  I am going to post my own experiences with this problem under a new thread I'll call "Sulfur burps, vomiting, diarrhea."
