I am 49 years old man.
Since starting september, I have noted my stool show dark green. Sometimes diarreah and sometimes not. I went to a doctor and he gave me a conviotic during 2 weeks, but still I have the dark green stool. Then he told me go to a gastroenterologo, so for that reason I am asking about this issue.
Exams show: not parasitic
stool culture show:
heavy growth escherichia coli
i am resistant ampicillin and tetracycline.
Blood exam: lymphocytes 67
I did'nt take yet the exam for blood in the stool, because the doctor did not ask about it.
what is escherichia coli?
why I still have dark green stool? or what cause the dark green stool.

E.Coli is part of natural enteric flora and can aid in digestion. It can also become unbalanced in relation to other enteric flora and cause problems. Hope the website helps with the color questions.

Any take pepto bismol the day before... that'll impact the color (as well as the chewable ones if you take them at night after brushing and don't brush again it'll turn your mouth black)

I have been going through the same thing these past 3 months, with me I noticed it was drinking milk and any dairy, also it could be IBS.
