It's just stools that have moved through your system super fast.

Diagnosis Oct 07 and then Aug 08: 2 Patches of Mild Chrohn's Colitis (unconfirmed)

Don't worry - I have had lots of green poop over the years and it is exactly as LondonRed said, it is just stools that have gone through your system quickly. In essence, the green is from your tummy juices.

Also can be from something you ate or drank. For example, I always drink a Strawberry/Watermelon flavor of Gatorade. Its pink, but it turns my poohs a flourescent looking green. Go figure. It's nothing to worry about.

My poo is dark green when I take iron, but if I go more often than usual it will go back to a more "normal" color. So I guess it really depends on what we eat, ingest, and how fast things move through us.

The most common location for Crohns is in the terminal ileum and the cecum both -- the last part of the small bowel and the first part of the colon. The disease seems to have an affinity for that section of the gastrointestinal tract. However, it can be anywhere, and it is really not accurate to say ot "spreads" from one area to another . . . Crohns is characterized by skip areas of affected and non-affected bowel, and they can vary over time. Think more of a checkerboard pattern than disease moving from one spot to another.

My poo was VERY green after my resection surgery in May, but as I ate more solid foods the green color color went away. Now, if I drink blue Gatorade or PowerAde, it will be green, but usually only from drinking those color fluids.
Biggest concern I had over poo color was when mine turned cream/white. It was because I developed jaundice and the bilirubin my liver ws supposed to filter out through waste was not being filtered and settling into my bloodstream. SEVERE itching was one of the side effects. Blood tests while on some of these meds are cruicial for catching this problem early.

Crohn's and UC are pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry. 
I'd much rather laugh.
2001 Dx'd with UC.  No remission.  5/2008 surgery, removal of 6" of left side colon.  Dx changed to Crohn's.  Remission for 8-9wks after surgery, symptoms returning after resuming 6MP.
