Drat! I ate too much and ended up cramping and throwing up. It did not help that I ate pecan pie, either. It is several days later and my output is still very liquid and green. What does it mean when it is green anyway?

I have been doing the BRAT diet the last couple of days trying to get it back to normal.

Live and learn, I guess...

be careful...you may still have a partial obstruction shakehead Do you have any pain? The green is bile (unless you ate something with green food coloring) and it's combination with high liquid output is an indication of some sort of a blockage.

Some swear by Grape Juice to move things along...I prefer Ginger Ale or a nice strong coffee.

When I had a temp ostomy, a bowl full of fresh blueberries made my stool an army green. My bag filled for hours, every 10 minutes.

Did you have fresh cranberries perhaps?

My surgeon said to avoid all berries in the future, the seeds wreak havoc on touchy guts.

It never did hurt - I just wanted to throw up all the time. I felt queezy. Things are returning to normal now. I guess it passed.

Ah, I wish I had a hot tub - that would be nice. I do have a pretty nice bathtub. My house was built in the 50s, so the tub is a good size and very sturdy. I did soak in that some and it seemed to help.
