Brief Answer:
No need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to health care magic, I share your concern and I will try to help you out in best possible way.
Loosing weight following an episode of diarrhea lasting for several days is not uncommon. Probable reasons are loss of bodily fluids and improper ansorption of consumed food etc..
If diarrhea has stopped completely, then there is no need to worry, if not you have to get stool examination done for stool sample microscopy and culture sensitivity and receive a course of antibiotics by consulting your physician.
Eat healthy as there are no dietary restrictions and consume lots of fluids.
wishing you good health.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
