As I understand it the issue is that the proteins are too complex to digest when raw. I would think the boiling chopped.mushrooms would help. Maybe try steaming in place of boiling? How did the boiled ones work out?

To my knowledge, I don't have any issue with eating mushrooms.
I love them sauteed with a butter sauce to go with a steak. And I love them on pizza, in spaghetti sauce, and of course in a soup.

I remember Trad Cotter mentioning it took high heat to break down the chiten, he suggested sauteeing until well done to release the most nutrients. He said butter was best because of synergistic nutrients, but a high temp veg oil like avocado or coconut worked. Yes, that much heat did break down some nutrients, but mostly ones that are easier to get in other foods, the unique nutrients survived.
One trick that I have used when I had an abundance is to dehydrate them and then grind into a flour. You can add the flour to soups and gravy and breads. I do a low heat dehydration and then toast in the oven to crack the chiten before grinding in the food processor.

Of course I never looked at other people's 'stool', so I don't know if this really is normal. It might have to do with my bad way of chewing (because I miss some molars).

This is much easier than transferring them to and from a food processor.
Works great to reduce most cooked veggies to a saucelike consistency.
Using an acid like vinegar or citrus might help as well, but it might stomp all over the taste.
I actually watched a Paul Stamets video today where he advised to not eat winecap mushrooms more than three days in a row because of digestion issues.
