I was told I have a stomach virus on Saturday, I am feeling better but still weak and nauseous, how long until I'm back to normal?

In brief: Gastroenteritis

Stomach viruses, also called gastroenteritis, can last from anywhere from a few days to about two weeks, depending on the particular virus, the patient, and other underlying diseases.
Also, it depends on whether or not the diagnosis was accurate to begin with. Drink fluids, and eat a BRAT diet (Bananas, Rice, Applesauce and Toast), get plenty of rest/sleep.
