First of all, I'm mortified that I'm posting this but I just can't google anymore, it's breaking me mentally. So please be kind in your replies.

I've been having floating stools for a month. I went to my PCP and she ran a cbc, metabolic, vitamin D, calcium, carotene, iron, folate, and b12 which all came back normal so she referred me to a gastroenterologist. I'm currently waiting for them to call me back after they get the referral from my doctor to make an appointment. In this time, I have been keeping a food diary and monitoring my bowel movements and have started to notice what my Google searches have show me to be possibly flukes??? Anyone know if this is truly what they look like? I'm horrified.
just for reference, I had a colonoscopy back in 2017 which came back all clear, and I was also tested for celiac and sibo at that time which both were negative.
I can't seem to figure out why my stools are still floating, could it be linked with the possible flukes????

Those are not flukes. Parasites have no color to them. Most likely it is undigested tissue (food).
