Is it normal to have pale colored stools 7 days after stomach flu?
Hello, Welcome to justanswer and thank you for your question.
Are you taking any pills?
Foul smell with stool?
Are you having diarrhea?
Not diarrhea but a feeling of incomplete evacuation after. So I had about 3 bm if about 20 min. It's not foul smelling. I took immodium 3 days ago and again today because I keep having bm and I thought I was going to get diarrhea. But I did have the flu last week with severe nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Pale stool can occur after diarrhea. Many patient experience such pale stool after stomach flu. It may take 1-2 weeks to get normal color of stool.
You should take Tab Imodium to reduce the frequency of bowel movements. It can be taken maximum up to 4 times, as per the requirement. Keep yourself hydrated, and maintain fluid levels. Eat something containing salt, such as crisps or soup. Maintain good standards of hygiene.
You can take ready-mixed rehydration sachets (eg Dioralyte, Rehidrat).
