Welcome to Healthcare Magic
The stomach problem may not be related to the cut. It would be best to have taken TT injection the same day of getting the wound. Incubation period is around 6-13 days commonly. Drink plenty of water. Keep well hydrated. Could be stomach infection due to contaminated hands or food. Eat yoghurt, curds, fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. If you feel sensitive to light, weakness, irritability you should be taken to Doctor immediately. Better to get TT shots as soon as possible to keep updated. Don't take much tension. Try to be cool. Be careful next time.

Hi well come to HCM.
Every injury if not treated will not lead to Tetanus.It is recommended as it being
severe and fatal condition to prevent it. Do not keep much anxiety about it as
such suggested symptoms do not suggest tetanus. Better you consult your doctor
clinical examination and detail history are equally important. Thanks
