Thanks for the query

It looks like you have recovered from an enteritis. It will take a week for you to completely recover. To consider chrons a more long standing history of Gastro intestinal discomfort should have been present. However Chrons is genetic so I would like you to undergo a screening colonoscopy once you reach 40s.

You could take probiotics like curd or easily available over the counter lacto bacillus pills for a week to stop gas. Avoid fibre XXXXXXX diet, oily food and legumes for a week.
I hope I have answered your query.

Please get back to me if you have further queries.

I wish you good health
