In between I vomited twice the morning. Yesterday I had loose motion for around 12-13 times. From yesterday evening stomach pain decreased and it is almost nil. But from evening to night there was loose motion for 3-4 times. I took 1 metrogyl in the morning and one in the evening. Also I took a cifran CT in the night.

Give rest to your bowels,don?t eat anything except ors untill u feel hunger pangs.Start with liquid diet like tea etc then move to light semi solid diet like khichdi in small quantity, if tolerable you can take your routine meal.
