Thanks a lot for waiting. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. I am sorry to hear about your problem. Green colour of stool indicates that you are having a bacterial infection. It's not simply a viral infection or stomach flu. You have to follow certain measures but you should visit emergency room too as you need antibiotics to get rid of this infection. The self measures include drinking lot of fluids like Gatorade. Eat BRAT diet only I.e banana, rice, Apple sauce and toast. You can take over the counter available tablet pepto Bismol twice daily for five days. I reassure you that there is nothing serious and you are going to be alright. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service but if you have received anything less than that, please ask anything you want. Your excellent feedback is requested and will be appreciated. Regards
