This answer was rated:

I accidentally took too much mineral oil and now I am leaking oil out of my butt. Its a greenish colour and I cant poo and it happens whenever I fart and theres oil in the toilet after I pee as well. Can this go away? How do I make it stop?
Welcome and thank you for your question.
It can take about 48 hours for the oil discharge to stop. The greenish color is due to increased movement of the oil through intestines.
Please take a high fibre diet to help form stools - oats, brown bread, etc - and also a large amount of fresh fruits and vegetables. This will help formation of stools and the oil discharge will gradually decreases. Taking carbs will help but fibre will help better.
