Bile is needed to absorb fats and fat soluble vitamins. It also helps to soften stools and is responsible for giving stools their characteristic brown color.
As bile makes its way through the intestines, it progressively changes color from green to yellow to brown, due to the action of bacteria in the large intestine on the bile salts.
Green stool often indicates that food has passed through the intestines faster than normal (called decreased bowel transit time), before it could be changed from green to brown.
i called my surgeon about this issue he was not sure what it was either i am getting somewhat annoyed with him when i ask questions over the phone he will not give me direct answers instead he says it possible i just would like to slap people when they say that.
my next appt with him is in july maybe i can say that all i am trying to do when i call is just trying to figure out what is normal with my ileostomy so when something new comes up i don.t freak out. sometime i think doctors think i am trying to tell them how to do their job or i think i know better than them men with their stupid egos
of course i did drink some grape juice tonight and pomagrante juice and its been really gassy tonight
i am trying to find a ostomy nurse in my hometown had not had any luck yet
