Detailed Answer:
Dear sir,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I see that you have an episode of passage of green coloured stools today and one way back one month ago . Generally it is not a thing to worry but if its frequency increase care needs to be taken . Common causes include Diet high in green vegetables such as spinach ,cucumber , eatables containing Food dyes , Severe diarrhea etc.

I would advise you not to worry and observe if it persists consult a physician and get stool r/m done . As if now wait and watch will be the best policy .

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
