It is not uncommon, roughage is very hard to digest. If you are new to healing, it may pass through fairly quickly.

This is all a learning process. To be frank: (who is frank, anyways??, frank, who?)

Sometimes within 12-24 hours, I can see what I ate. (got the drift?)

Sometimes is see what I remember as normal (can't identify)...that's a good thing.

When you see what you consumed, back off of that and go back to the basics, rice, fish, meat, veggies and other simple foods.

When I was sick, it took about 20 minutes for the entire meal to pass, totally undigested. With no villi, my lunch went slip slidding away. :unsure: "Slip-Sliddin-Away"... Great song, I may add. I think it should be our theme song.

I just had to post this morning. Always had a problem with not digesting certain foods (corn, for example), but never lettuce. Until today! Last night's dinner was there--including the lettuce. I have been eating lots of gluten to prepare for the endoscopy, and I swear things are getting worse the more gluten I eat. I can't wait to go off of it again and see what happens to my body!

With celiacs it's not only roughage. It's pretty much everything. The reason is, because your intestines can't actually process the food, because they are damaged. I had that, too, when I wasn't diagnosed yet. It disappeared after a few weeks already on the glutenfree diet. Now I have a real normal stool, unless I get glutened by accident. The only thing that shows up undigested NOW sometimes is salad actually. Not always, though.
