Thanks for writing to HCM
There are many causes of green stool.It indicates that food has been moved through the large intestine too quickly,such as due to watery diarrhea due to Clostridium difficile (typically after antibiotic use).As a result,bile doesn't have time to break down completely.
Green colour stool may also be due to intake of green leafy vegetables,green food coloring agents such as in flavored drink mixes,iron supplements etc.
Mostly green colour stool is due to benign reasons but frequent occurrences of green stool need medical attention to ensure that an infection is not present.
Get well soon.
