You are young so you should be able to gain back your weight fast if appetite is fine and you no longer have gastrointestinal symptoms. If you do not gain back some weight in the next 7 days, see your doctor then.

More details are needed. Are you eating sufficient amounts? How is your general health? You should see a doctor in person
