In brief: IBS is possible

Acute gastroenteritis (age) does not last one month.
We often see post infectious irritable bowel syndrome following age, which can last weeks-months. Post infectious ibs is best treated with dietary adjustments. I recommend the low fodmap diet for 5 weeks. Celiac is uikely, but lab testing for this is quick and easy and should be done.
