as you diarrhea have settled now and your stool analysis is clear which means that the parasitic infection is eliminated. then it is recommended that you should not take more medications that is metronidazole. you should continue soft diet and if you feel uncomfortable with the abdominal pain then you can use antispasmodic drugs like nospa 1 tab 2 time daily for 3 days. a dietry advice is use of bananas at least 2 in the early morning on empty stomach which strengthens your gut mucosa and helps in hardening the stools
