Hello, Thanks for contacting HCM.
By the description of your stool consistency , it appears
you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome
people gain weight after quitting smoking
. But this is temporary
and you still have to watch your diet. You need to be on a high
fiber diet. Eat lots of whole grain foods, fresh vegetables, nuts etc.
Drink plenty of fluids. Start regular walking exercises at least three
times a week. Make sure that you have your thyroid
blood tests to
rule out under active thyroid.
