Hi Sandra - The doctor on this forum is CYBERDOC.

To my knowledge greenish stools are generally food related - Either green veggies, or products containing colorants. It may also be a result of bile in stools moving through the intestine more rapidly than usual.

In general it is no reason for worry, but if it continues, or if your bowel habits have changed in other ways, you may want to call your doctor.
