I was talking to another AC survivor. We were discussing how before we had treatment of distinct smell with our bowel movement and passing gas. We are over a year out from treatment and we feel like we smell that smell again. Anyone else out there experienced this?

Beans seem to have an immediate extreme effect.

I believe I smell differently now
Sorry Shannon I can't say that I experienced that. My smell all depends on my diet. At times I don't have a smell at all and other times, it smells pungent. I did remember post treatment i did have a chemical smell but chalked it up to chemo.
When I have passed gas it unfortunately is with stool 😳
