At the beginning I would sit on the toilet and immediately pass diarrhea. I was afraid to go anywhere. Now, I sit and go and its a green, kinda fuzzy, loose stool. Am I getting better?

This is disgusting..No phone response either
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 2 years ago.

I'm sorry. I don't do phone service. It sounds like you may have a bowel infection. It may be caused by clostridium difficile. This can be identified with a stool culture. You will need a prescription by a dr to clear it up.

But am I improving since I am not running to the bathroom anymore and the stool is a bit more normal. Its fuzzy of loose green pieces as opposed to very very loose small soupy pieces
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 2 years ago.

Often it will resolve on its own with no treatment. You are safe to wait if it seems to be resolving.

Its still a bit looser but it has turned back to brown after being green for a week. Does this indicate anything good?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It still has a shredded look to it and I don't feel perfect but I don't know how long this takes
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 2 years ago.

Yes. The color change is good
