Brief Answer:
EE not required

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I went through your query and understood your concerns.

Recent change in consistency of stool mostly seen in intestinal problems better to get colonoscopy test done as your doctors advice.
EE is not required in my opinion with your history. We usually order investigations based symptoms and probable diagnosis. based on your symptoms and physical examination findings we come to some conclusion and order tests to confirm that condition to start further treatment.

Hope i answered your query. Feel free to ask further related queries.

Wish you a good health.
