General Surgeon 's  Response
AS per your letter,you had Infection of your Gastro intestinal tract.
As you are still passing semi solid stools,3-4 times a day ,your infection is not completely cured.
The sticky substance on your finger is probably mucus,which is seen in infections conditions.
Nothing to worry.It will be completely cured with Proper Broad spectrum antibiotic,which has action against parasitic infestation also.
Please don't insert your finger in your anus unless advised.
Wish you good health
