Welcome to Healthcare magic!
Foul smelling stool could be due to gut infection or malabsorption.
Stool test is the first step in its evaluation.
Your stool test shows your bowel is inflamed which could be due to infection. A stool culture may be done for evaluation.
Some amount of undigested food particles especially vegetables can be considered normal.
The 1-3 RBC/hpf and 0-2/hpf pus cells in the urine are not significant and no further testing is required for that.
Does that answer your question?
