Thanks for the question. I would say that whenever, there is green or yellow color of the vomitus (vomit) indicative of liver & gallbladder disorders, some times biliary obstruction. Gall bladder disease can be due to gall stones also. It is important to rule out acid-peptic disease which can give yellowish vomit. But it is the gall bladder & biliary disorders which are top on the list for giving such vomit. The important thing to remember that if there is any such color in vomiting then visit to ER or see your physician for complete evaluation and tests such as abdominal scan, complete blood count, liver function tests, serum amylase. These symptoms should not be taXXXXX XXXXXghtly and early evaluation is highly advised. Best wishes.
