In brief: Gastroenteritis

Depending on the etiology, symptoms can last from days to weeks.
After a evacuation of the GI tract you may feel constipated until you fill up with food again. You can develop a relative lactose intolerance for several weeks post some infections, some also have difficulty with fresh fruits and vegetables for a week or so afterwards.
