Food poisoning recovery

Hello Group,

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.

What is the timeline of getting back to normal?

Thanks,  

Joe

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.
