Varies: Time of recovery usually depends on virus and takes days to weeks. You can be contagious from a few days to two weeks, depending on which virus is causing your stomach flu (gastroenteritis).. Severe dehydration can occur which needs supplemented fluids sometimes intravenous therapy and hospitalization.
