See a doctor


This should be fairly easy to diagnose with a stool specimen and a history and physical exam. There are several easy to treat GI infections you may have gotten. Hope you are better soon.

Nonspecific


Abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea are fairly nonspecific symptoms. They could be due to a variety of GI problems, most of which however are probably functional. While a hiatal hernia isn't anatomic problem that can cause some functional problems, this is usually related to difficulty eating, chest pain, anemia, or reflux symptoms. You could see your primary care provider to try to sort this out. Best of luck!

See your surgeon


Loose stools and diarrhea after gallbladder surgery can be effectively managed with a bile acid binding resin medication in many cases. Questran is a brand name. See your surgeon about this, and consider upper and lower endoscopy as well for a complete evaluation of your GI tract.

Diarrheal infection?


Colon, rectum, or anus symptoms can be due to some irritation (inflammation) or infection. Serious problems like cancers are possible, depending on one's age and family history. Irritation can occur from diarrhea, giardia, constipation, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, etc... A primary care doctor can evaluate, and refer to a G.I. specialist if needed.

The possibility of cancer exists, but, so does a mild infection. My main suggestion-based on the 2 Week history alone- is to see a doc to get an appropriate exam and work up. No one will be able to answer your question beyond this without the added information.
