I was recently sick with stomach flu and I ate pizza today and now I'm passing gas every minute. Is it just from pizza or because I was sick?
Probably both: It's common for people who normally tolerate milk to have gas, cramps, loose stools, etc with milk, cheese, etc after viral gastroenteritis ("stomach flu"). The infection reduces the intestinal enzyme lactase, which digests milk sugar. Poorly digested milk gives intestinal bacteria a feast -- and whey THEY digest it, acid and gas are produced, with symptoms like yours. It should improve soon. ...Read more
My daughter is suffering from gastroenteritis. Her stomach/upper abdomen is hard n uncomfortable and she has a hard time releasing gas. What is wrong?
I have horrible smelling bowel movements and gas after gastroenteritis. Stool looks a little loose. It has been about 8 days. Muscle weakness too. ??
Gastroenteritis: I don't think that the horribly smelling stool is of concern but the loose stools of viral gastroenteritis usually resolve after a week although it can be followed by an irritable bowel syndrome. If significant diarrhea is prolonged the stool should be cultured to check for pathogens that need treatment. In the meantime avoid harsh roughage,take kaopectate (kaolin and pectin) as needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Gut bacteria: Digestion problems after a recent illness may be due to alterations of the natural bacteria in the gut. This can occur due to antibiotics taken for an infection or the infection itself. Typically the natural bacteria will repopulate over time however taking a good quality probiotic supplement may help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What to do if I have severe gas, bloating, and yellow stools after having a stomach flu a couple of days ago is this normal?
Stomach flu starting Wednesday night. Still having bouts of diarrhea, lots of stomach pains, cramping, gas, loud stomach noises and movements. ?
I had stomach flu 5 days ago. The vomiting/diarrhea stopped, but now I eat anything and get massive gas and have yellow stool, or diarrhea again. ?
Still healing: Even though you've recovered from your gastrointestinal infection, some effects still remain. It may take a while for the inner lining of the intestines to heal and for normal digestion to return. During this time, you should increase fluid intake, eat bland foods and avoid alcohol, beans, fatty foods & raw veggies. Limit dairy products to yogurt, lactaid & a bit of cheese. You'll be fine soon. ...Read more
