Fluid and food: Gastroenteritis can be a very serious problem for your body to deal with. The amount of fluid lost through diarrhea in addition to the lack of intact can lead to severe dehydration. Furthermore the lack of nutrition causes the body to break down protein for energy. It takes a lot of fluid, nutrition, and rest to recover.

Took milk thistle. Stomach upset so stopped. Same time had flu (not stomach flu) but lost appetite & nauseous esp after food. Feels like when my gallbladder was inflamed. Have I caused damage?
