Last week I had a bowel movement that was loose but was green. I just had another bowel movement that was normal but again green. I have had a colonostopy within the past 5 years. No palips, just minor diverticulitis. My diet hasnt changed other than drinking some blue colored juice drink. I am a 59 year old male who has recently undergone a radiation seed implant for prostate cancer. That was almost 2 years ago and all seems to be going well.
Probably related to the content of the blue drink- perhaps high in sugar or other carbohydrate. If no better in a week or so talk to your primary doctor to see if an evaluation is in order.
