Bad stomach, light colored stools after days of food poisoning. Normal?

I had food poisoning a few days ago which involved diarrhea along with 38 degree fever. Two days later I have no fever and am on my feet , but my stomach is still quite bad and am worried about my stool which is very light in color (albeit now somewhat solid); the previous day it was liquid and fizzy with bubbles. As I have never had this before is this something I should worry about or will it improve?

Hi,I had gone through your query and understand your concern.

Please do not worry.You are now on recovery phase.Within a very short time your bowel will be normal.

But if such condition continues beyond 3 days,please meet your local doctor and get a stool R/M/E.

Hope this helps you.If you have additional queries,please do not hesitate in writing us.Wish you good health
