I didn't get any reply therefore i am posting an answer for you.

Its not unusual to have some degree of mild abdominal discomfort for a few days since onset of infection; but it should fade away with time as other symptoms start to improve.

One of the indication to see the doctor in cases of stomach flu is uncontrolled excessive diarrhea, inability to tolerate orally and recurrent vomiting, high grade fever, and severe abdominal pain.

I believe if at this point the other symptoms have improved, this pain will also improve gradually. But if this is causing significant distress then as per standard guidelines you need a clinical exam and tests like ultrasound of abdomen for exact diagnosis.

Green tea, Banana, Applesauce and all kinds of soft diets are recommended for the time being.

Drink lot of water and keep yourself adequately hydrated.

Good luck

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
