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.

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
