A member asked:

Yellow-ish stool after stomach bug okay? my whole airbnb caught it. stool has become solid which is nice. still some gas and bloat. 7-10+ days since main symptoms. also taking probiotic. have ibs symptoms from time to time previously?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

The main agent adding color to the poo is the material made by the liver called bile. It starts out a dark green and goes thru the yellows to brown depending on the influences of various factors in the intestines. Rapid transit thru the system, as may occur with diarrhea may have a greenish yellow or yellow appearance. The slower, more likely browner.
