  1. Hi All, So I've felt something is wrong with my digestion since I had my first child in 2008. Around this time I also quit drinking alcohol, so I assumed the weight loss was due to that. However, after my second daughter was born in 2010, I've continued to lose weight. My doctor gave me a clean bill of health in August, but I've made an appointment with a GI specialist because of these symptoms: 2-3 loose stools per day one episode of blood on TP & in toilet (last week, which prompted me to make the GI appt) weight loss without trying (pre children averaged 155, now 128) extreme itchy skin but no rash tingling in right hand Of course I'm also terrified I have colon cancer or some such. Has anyone had symptoms like this? It really feels like food goes right through me and is not getting absorbed. Any feedback would be great as I'm curious if anyone has shared my experience.
