Neon Green Diarrhea
I have ESLD and suffering from horrible diarrhea that is neon green and slimy, resembles an infants "spit up" and smells like formula. Is this normal?
It sounds like you have MALABSORBTION secondary to insufficient BILE production. Try limiting your FAT intake!!! You should be in contact with your gastroenterologist and you should discuss your nutrition as well as a way to treat your diarrhea!
DO THIS ASAP!
Hope this helps a little!

I am a 22 year old male. I have had severe diarrhea, stomach gurgling and sulfer smelling belches for 2 days. Everything that comes out is neon green?
Neon/ dark green stool with abdominal cramping for two days. I had mucus in my stool, diarrhea & lower abdominal cramping before this. Why is this?
Normal: The stool color is provided by the bile from the liver that is adds to fecal debris. It starts out a deep green ; slowly changes thru greens to yellows to browns as the germs in the intestines metabolize the bile. Green generally means the stool in question moved through faster or was subject to less change by gut germs. ...Read more
Diarrhea: Diarrhea can range from very mild to severe. For severe diarrhea and associated symptoms, I would recommend going to either the emergency room or urgent care clinic.

When in doubt, go check it out. ...Read more
Change the milk: If your newborn is drinking a cow milk formula, then the milk may be the culprit. If this is a chronic problem review the symptoms with your doctor as well as the infant's weight.

Good news! The only stool colors we get really concerned about are red (blood from colon), black (blood from small intestine or stomach), or white (liver is not working well). Colors such as brown, yellow, orange, green, even blue (blue kool-aid or blueberries) or purple (beets) can all be normal and usually associated with diet. If she has a persistent change in her stool habits, you should contact her physician since this could be a sign of an underlying disorder, but a one-time strange stool that is not red, black or white is usually of no concern.
Other reasons to contact her doctor are fever, diarrhea that lasts longer than a week or any concern for dehydration. ...Read more

Normal variation: The color of poo is derived from the waste pigment that end up in the bile, which is added to the intestines from the liver.
