Have abdominal pain, gassy, bloated, burping, minimal bowel movements. Taken hcg diet, injections. Normal after diet?

Im a 26 yr old female. 143lbs and i just finished the hcg diet with injections last week. I had diarrhea 2 weeks prior to stopping and now have abdominal pain and gassy, full feeling. I was admitted to the hospital last week for a possible bowel obstruction which was ruled out. Now, I feel the pain in the left side near my pancreas and large intestine. Bowel movements are minimal, but I am burping all the time. Is this normal for someone to go through after the diet?

Thanks for posting your query.
With the available described details, there could also be possibility of acute bacterial gastroenteritis.
Frequent urge to use washroom but not getting anything is very specific for bacterial gastroenteritis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for complete blood count, ultrasound imaging, and serum electrolytes.
You should take complete antibiotic therapy, antispasmodics, probiotics, antipyretics, if needed.
You should maintain your hydration by taking potassium rich liquids.
Frequent loose diarrhea may cause loss of potassium with weakness and fatigue feeling.
Avoid milk and all milk related products.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
