I want to know how long it will take until my bowel movements are back to normal? I had a bad case of salmonella poisoning last Friday and the cramps, diarrhea, and fever went away on Saturday. I still have diarrhea after eating foods and/or very soft pale stool which has lasted since last Sunday. I'm going on a week after initially getting poisoned today.
Things should be back to normal by now. I would see your doctor to determine if there is more going on...like maybe a parasite. Keep yourself well hydrated with water, and low sugar Gatorade to replenish your electrolytes.
