In brief: Yes you can but

Once you are over with an intestinal infection, most of the time it is done and you can eat everything and go back to your regular diet.
Yes you can take advil as long as your stomach is ok, but if you still have nausea or feel little sick i will recommend take tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain as it is gentle on your stomach than advil.
