oily



I am quite healthy and two mornings ago I woke up to an awful smell. During my sleep I had passed some oily discharge, mostly liquid.  I continued this during the day and noticed slow oily leaking constantly.  I have never experienced anal sex of any kind.  I am waiting to talk to a doctor but want to find out as much as I can as soon as possible.  I have been under severe stress due to the death of a dear friend.  Any ideas would be welcome.  Thank you.

I have similar problems due to not being able to digest my food, particularly fats, properly. I have atypical CF which has affected my pancreas, which is responsible for delivering digestive enzymes (protease, lipase, amylase) the the intestines as food passes through so that it can be broken down or digested. If there is a problem with the pancreas, sometimes digestive enzymes are affected as well and food goes right through you in the manner you describe. Do you have any other symptoms such as pain in your gut etc...? It is good that you are going to the doc so that he or she can run tests on you to see what the cause is. There are many disorders that can cause this, so it is always good to check it out. Sunny

I forgot to ask, do have problems with your stool as well besides the leaking? They tend to float if they contain alot of fat in them. This condition is called steatorrhea, or fatty stools.

Sunny, thank you for your reply.  I am glad to report the condition lasted only about a day and a half.  I am almost positive that it was brought on by my eating  all of a 6oz can of Genova premium yellowfin tuna, which has a lot of olive oil.  For the last six months I have been trying to eat all dietary oil in its "original packaging," ie eat the walnut whole, rather than the processed oil from the nut.  This idea comes from Fuhrman's Eat to Live.  My digestive system was probably surprised.  The pleasant outcome for me is to discover this site for people to exchange ideas on health, etc.  Thanks again for your concern and your reply. Mike

Mike, one thing to think about is the chips you are eating.  There are some out there that are billed as low-fat and contain OLESTRA which is the same substance found in the drug that is now over the counter in ALLI.  It will cause these symptoms.

Mary, Thanks for your reply. I was certainly reminded of reading about this symptom being connected with Olestra.  I try not to eat any "industrial food" and am certain I had nothing with Olestra in it.  Almost certain it was the relatively large influx of olive oil in the can of tuna I had eaten the previous day.  Thanks for your thoughts and wish you the best with your considerable challenges.  Mike   Ps  I love cajun music!

I have similar problems.  Three times in the last six months I have had an oily discharge with my BMs.  I consider myself healthy, eat right and excercise.  I do take cod liver oil.  Could this be the problem?  I have scheduled an appointment with a GI specialist in two weeks, but am trying to find information before I see him.  My search has led me to this website.  Any ideas out there?

by fay47, April 3, 2008 5:00 p.m. I have had rectal splincter surgery to repair torn splincter muscles which caused me to have bowel leakage, the surgery did not stop the leakage and have extreme foul smelling gas and it also seems that I have oily smelling stools.  I also have some problems with dairy products. I cannot control the gas nor can I control the leakage. Does anyone know anything about this problem and what  can be done about it. I also am on Weight  W control eating. But have had the problem prior to starting the control eating.

I am dealing with an itchy oily anus. Hemorroid, yes. Anal sex, no. Very itchy, and now it seems, very oily. Just starting my research...

I discovered that the cause of my unpleasant and alarming anal leakage and "accidents" was soy bean oil. After eating nearly an entire bag of sesame sticks I later read the ingredients: First ingredient, bran; second ingredient, soy bean oil. But at the time didn't have a clue as to what was wrong with me. I was "sick" for months, and tried omitting wheat from my diet, and then eating nothing but canned chicken and rice soup, and then nothing but SlimFast in an attempt to give my "tummy" a rest. Doctor ordered stool tests (all negative), prescribed probiotics (no help) and Lomotil (no help).Still had leakage problems. One day at a birthday party the hostess suddenly left the room commenting that the cake frosting must have been made with soy bean oil which gives her terrible intestinal cramps. Bingo! I started reading food labels and cut all soy bean oil from my diet, which can be difficult because it is in almost all commercially prepared food. Crisco basically IS soy bean oil, ditto commercial mayonnaise (I now use sour cream instead -- even on sandwiches) and bottled salad dressings.  Frozen entrees, peanut butter (except Smart Balance), margarine, canned soups (Progresso has less), even SlimFast! Potato chips, restaurant Mexican food which can be fried in Crisco, granola snack bars -- the list goes on and on. I now think I have had this sensitivity for years and years but that the sesame stick binge hugely aggravated it. Eliminate all soy bean oil for just one week and see if you don't improve. Also good: raw apples.
