Brief Answer:
Gastroenteritis /IBS....

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read carefully all your concerns and I understood your query.

You are experiencing diarrhea and stomach pain for 2-3 weeks.
To my opinion you need to do further exams like :
- fecal culture test
-fecal exam for candida,ova and parasites
-blood work
-occult fecal blood test
-abdominal ultrasound

Your symptoms may be related to :
- bowel infection/ acute gastroenteritis
- IBS

It is important to know if you have used recently antibiotics?

You have gallbladder removed , may I know where?
Meantime I suggest to :
- use plenty of water
- use probiotics
- use hydramine and tasectan
- avoid fatty and spicy foods
- avoid sweety foods
-continue using gastop pil ( bismuth plus simeticone )
-use prilosec and spasmex to relief stomach pain.

If I were your treating doctor I would recommend to start metronidasole and ciprofloxacine.
Please discuss it with your doctor.

Hope it was helpful to you!
