Another day, maybe: Usually young people such as yourself bounce back quite quickly from viral gastroenteritis. I presume you had IV fluids if you measured it in 1000 ml/1 liter. And you've been drinking water. Keep it up, take it easy until you feel better/less dizzy. Should not be more than 48 hours more. See doc again if longer. Good wishes:) ...Read more

This would bury the hatchet on the question of pregnancy once and for all. ...Read more

Fluid replacement: There is no "cure"for a viral gastroenteritis. The important thing is to keep up with fluid losses--usually staring with small volumes of fluid and increasing as tolerated.

Work up to solids with bland foods like bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, gelatin, or chicken. Avoid alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, dairy & high fat foods. Sometimes IV hydration is indicated.

Simple = best: I find that simple, easy to digest material; noodles, macaroni & spaghetti without sauce, graham crackers, broths, steamed rice, apple sauce, some vegetables & boiled meats are all well tolerated by a recovering gut. Fried foods/acidic juices/milk or cheese & spicy foods will often lead to recurrent cramping or nausea if consumed too early. ...Read more
