Is dark green diarrhea bad? I ate berry crunch cereal 3 times in the last 12 hours.

Maybe. Maybe not.: Having occasional episodes of vomiting or diarrhea can be due to something in the food (such as food poisoning by bacteria or their secreted chemicals). Another cause of such symptoms is a stomach virus. A primary care doctor can review one's history and do an exam to see if there is anything to worry about.

Black stools: The green color is nothing to worry about. It may be bile or something you have eaten. Truly black stools generally should be tested (very simple to do in the doctor's office) to be sure it is not due to old blood. This will probably clear up soon. If not, check with an urgent care facility. Best wishes. ...Read more

Diarrhea: When red meat is not cooked properly or is kept in the refrigerated condition for a long time, the possibility of diarrhea increases manifold. Consumption of red meat that is infected with a bacterium called Escherichia coli is one of the most common causes of food poisoning. Maybe he should get a stool culture.

Dark green diarrhea and queasy feeling in stomach. Also vomited large amounts of yellow fluid (just fluid) this morning. No change to eating/drinking?

Gastroenteritis: Sounds like you have gastroenteritis. If it gets to the point where you are unable to keep fluids down, you will likely have to go to the ER to get medications and some fluids into you. I would switch to Gatorade to help you with your electrolytes that you are likely losing and hopefully it will pass in the next 12-24 hours and decrease in severity. If it doesn't, go to the ER for further eval. ...Read more

Not related: Post cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) symptoms, if you get them at all, usually start soon after the operation. 2 months later, they are more likely to be due to something you ate or a a GI bug. If they don't get better in a day or two, see your primary doctor. ...Read more
