im a 37 yo male, about 8 weeks ago i decided to start having fibre bran for breakfast and up my intake of fruit & veg. about 6 weeks ago i starting breaking wind much more but also i noticed a yellowy green mucus coming out of my anus, there was also a little blood in the first stool but i suspected this was the piles i had developed whilst straining as some of the stools were hard to pass. i done some research and thought i was eating too much fibre, i hadnt realised that the fibre bran was to be taken with cereal instead i was having a full bowl as main cereal, so that stopped about 2 weeks ago, however the situation hasnt changed, it disappeared for a couple of weeks but is back now. my stools have been either small long ribbon like or small balls compacted together. i feel bloated until i have a poo. im having to push my farts out too and so i feel like there is some kind of blockage there. im going to doctors next week but would like any suggestions what it could be? help!
