Gastroenterologist 's  Response

Usually, gastroschisis is treated surgically when the baby is born. As you are 19 years old, you supposed to already had that intervention.

Discharge and foam from anus could indicate a gastrointestinal infection, for which I would recommend to perform coproculture.

Another reason could be a malabsorption of lipids; therefore you might run some tests for malabsorption.

Until the results are in, you can take probiotics to regulate the normal flora of the intestines.
