I have been eating a lot of green leafy foods, now I have green poop. Is it bad? Should i stop eating spinach, lettuce, and veggies? What should I do?

No : No, plz do not stop. Now, i believe in moderation even in moderation. Have some greens with each meal and vary them. Also make sure your chewing properly. It could be that you are not chewing enough and that's why your poop is so green...Hope this helps. ...Read more

I started out with a fever, then bad green poop and horrible gas.  My stool is now back to brown color and solid I have a pain below my collar bone.

Gallbladder: Pain under the collar bone is usually referred pain from something irritating the diaphragm (this muscle does not have pain fibers). Fever, with green stool usually can represent gall bladder disease in females your age. I would say you can observe for now, but the persistent pain is worrisome. If it does not improve or worsens please contact your physician. ...Read more

Im pooping black and light green is this bad?

Im pooping black and light green  is this bad?

Not necessarily: The color of your stool is affected by what you eat. If you had peptobismo which has bismuth. This will make your stools black. Stool can also be black from gastrointestinal bleeding. Digested blood looks black. If you eat lots of green leafy fibrous vegetables, your stools could look greener. The bigger question is are you having diarrhea, i.E more than 3 stools or watery stools a day. ...Read more

Why is my poop green now for four to five days and i don't eat green leafe veg, so what can cause this and is it bad for u ?

Green Stool: It could be something else your are eating or a new medication or supplement you are taking. Additionally, bile can cause greenish bowel movements and if you have "rapid transit" of your bowels, for some reason, this could be the cause. It is usually not serious and goes away. If it lasts for another week or so, you may want to have it checked out. ...Read more

Haven't been able to go to bathroom for almost 3 days, and now my poop is dark green and it smells very bad. Why, and should I worry, and what to do?

Haven't been able to go to bathroom for almost 3 days, and now my poop is dark green and it smells very bad. Why, and should I worry, and what to do?

Constipation: The smell of your poop as well as its color are not good enough cues to tell whether you should worry or not. I would expect it to smell bad even if it didn't stay in for 3 days, but much more so if it did. The green color of your poop if unusual, but to be honest, it's a subjective estimate of it and doesn't tell me what's going on. If you have no other symptoms and your stool resumes routine =ok. ...Read more
