Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
As your child has recieved complete antibiotic course for E.Coli infection with imipenem and loose motions got controlled, she will be normal.
How is her activity and urine output ?
How is her oral intake and her weight?
These will tell her hydration status and if they are good, then your baby is normal.
Hope I have answered your query.
