Thanks for posting your query.

What you are having is fairly common and happens to many. Most of the time after G.I.infection due to antibiotics and anti motility drugs that are given, this problem happens.

This drug disturbs the function of intestine and lead to this.

Please do following which should help.

>Take light diet.
>Take more liquids, juices etc are better
>Take curd, butter milk etc which are good in such conditions
>Avoid maize products like biscuits, bread etc.
>Take regular diet on regular intervals.
>Take vegetable soups, diet XXXXXXX in fibers which should help.

I hope this helps.

Wishing you good health.
