Dont worry, it appears to be a solitary episode. Eat well and have lots of water, it will disapear. If it is a recurring problem, stools need to be examined by a Pathologist to rule out any pathogenic infection including fungal etc. Stool exam will also bring out any metabolic disease. Dont worry, it may not recur.

Hello.welcome.If it was a solitary stool then it is nothing and may due to something you had in your food.But if you are having many green motions in a day then it could be due to some infection in your intestines for which you need to consult your doctor for the medications.good luck.
