These symptoms are common in the post natal period. There is nothing serious to be worried about.

You should start eating slowly and you will get back the normal appetite soon.

I do not think there is anything wrong in your digestive system.

Take multivitamin supplements like Becosules or zincovit one tablet daily for 6 weeks.

I wish you good health.
