Toad, it sounds like there is a problem with fat absorption in your gut. This may be due to enzyme problems, drugs, eating too much fat, etc. There is a small possibility that it’s being secreted by a polyp or something, but I doubt it. If the problem persists you will have to see your doctor. Good luck.
