Black output

Any info on black output in stoma?

Rockford

@daveswife
Don't be to worried if it's black I have that problem sometime due to certain foods I eat.
Black could mean iron in the food.
Also if it's red don't think it's blood it's usuealy beetroot of tomatoe dishes.
It's when nothing comes out you got problems.
Best wishes,
Steve.

I`d run it past your team @daveswife just to be sure, but like above it definitely changes colour, smell and consistency with what you eat :x::x:
