when getting over stomach bug how long before everything is back to normal?

my 2.5 year old had a bad stomach bug for 5 days - diarrhea and vomiting; hardly no eating, just drinking. it's been two full days since his last diarrhea/no poop. i guess it's because there was not much solid food in his system, but over the past two days, he did start eating and keeping food down. is he not yet pooping because his system is just getting back to normal? probably the case but just wanted to check. thanks!

  • 3 weeks not to poop is a long time. i'd say that if by tuesday he's still not pooping at all take him to the doctor. try giving him juices to help him pass.

  • I just got over one.. It depends on the person really. I had a 24 hour bug and I felt fine the next day.
