Brief Answer:
A clinical examination would yield valuable clues

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I understand your concerns. The intestinal bacteria degrade the left over food materials to produce foul gases. So the problem could be:
* Relating to malabsorption where much of the food might remain undigested. In such a case a stool microscopic examination would provide valuable clues.
* It could be due to some problems in the rectum and anal canal. There could be conditions like fistula-in-ano which could be associated with foul odour. You need a thorough clinical examination for its confirmation. Sitz bath would provide relief.

I would strongly insist that you visit a doctor and get yourself evaluated. Let me know the findings and I would try to help you again thereafter.

Regards
