Fecal Fat?

What does fecal fat in water look like? Any first hand experiences with steatorrhea or excess fecal fat? What would you describe the water looks like after excreting the waste, what would you describe the stools looking like?

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  This could look like many different things.  It could just be that your stools are floating, or that there is grease floating in the water (it will "clump" together as fat resists water).
