Stools after diarrhea
Two days ago I had a moderate bout with diarrhea, which I'm pretty sure was caused by eating too many sweets and an entire frozen pizza.  Yesterday, my stool looked somewhat well-formed, but there was still a little bit of watery stool immediately afterwards.  Today, I had two bowel movements several hours apart, which is normal for me.  The first was only somewhat loose and somewhat well-formed, and the second was fairly loose again but not well-formed.  Either of my stools today have been watery, and there was no urgency to pass them.  I was just wondering if this would still be considered diarrhea, or does it just take time after diarrhea for stools to return to normal consistency?  Thank you in advance.  

Update 12/23/2009:  THIS RESEARCH HAS BEEN COMPLETED - THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP & PARTICIPATION.  KevanBD

I forgot to mention that I also had a semi-loose, only semi-formed bowel movement yesterday afternoon.  I kind of 'forced' both afternoon bowel movements, and I'd been drinking caffeine before each of them, which I'm thinking could be a factor??  It just seems like my morning stools appear more consistant, while my afternoon ones aren't.
