I have three ulcers they smell very bad like ammonia and i cant use the bathroom so i smell stool i need help to take away this smell cant go out this smell has been here for 4 months i tried some thing didnt work can someone please help me.
Hi @dove, I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been faced with such a frustrating situation. Can I ask what you had tried before that didn’t work for you? I’m also curious if your doctor has prescribed you any medications for your ulcers, as sometimes this can be a side-effect of medication.
I’m tagging @dawn_giacabazi who has discussed ulcers on Connect before. I’m hoping she may have some insight on this and be able to weigh in!
@dove, have you told you doctor about this issue?

Thanks @aliskahon & Hi @dove! Let me start with, ulcers are NO FUN!! Few questions. I had 5 ulcers we have successfully healed.
* Have you seen a doctor for this?
* what is the color and consistency of the stools?
* Has your gallbladder been removed?

@dawn_giacabazi no i didnt have my gallbladder removed.
@dove. Sounds like you’re doing all the right things. I ask those particulr questions because patients can get ” dumping syndrome” which cause extremely foul-smelling stools but mustard yellow color and watery consistency.
@dawn_giacabazi thank you im trying for a point in time i thought it was leaky gut but the doctor said no.
@dove, I’ve been doing some more digging and I found this article that has a few possible reasons for an ammonia-like body odor: http://www.drmirkin.com/morehealth/1072.html
Do you eat a lot of protein or did you have a helicobacter test when you were diagnosed with peptic ulcers? @dawn_giacabazi, have you ever heard of this?
Hello @aliskahan. No i didnot have that trst done the doctor did from the rectom and threw the mouth i saw four spots on colon and three holes in lining but that tells me nothing about this smell that i so hate
