Hello, about 12months ago i went to the doctors with quite a disgusting condition. I had green snot like stuff coming from my anus when i strained to go to #2. The doctor doen a test and treated it with antibiotics. It came back a few weeks later and i was booked in for a colonoscopy. They didnt find anything wrong! Its returned again over the past week and i have been dodging bread etc incase it was something to do with that! The only thing in my diet thats different is that i now drink more milk with my protein shakes and i have a lot going on at the moment, i dont feel stressed but i havent been sleeping properly etc. Goodness knows what it could be?? Can you help?
