Strong urge to pass stool, abdominal discomfort, have GERD and gastritis. Worry?

when i get up in morning i have strong urge to have bm with mild upper right abdominal discomfort (under right rib cage). when i do it floats and most of time eventually sinks. if i dont go in morning and wait till the evening it sinks 90% of the time. its also more formed in evening than morning. still formed in morning just softer. but either way i always have to wipe excessively with quite abit on the paper after first wipe and thick. also normally have alot of partially digested vegtable matter in stool. i have had stool tests for parasites and fat. altho fat test was not the 72hr one. also had normal colonoscopy , hida scan, gallblader ultrasound and ct scan of pelvis and abdomin. have gerd and mild gastritis determined after upper endoscopy . my question: is this something to worry about?
