I got the stomach virus on Wed. night (late) and was up most of the night throwing up and some diarrhea. Stayed in bed all day Thursday and part of yesterday. got up yesterday and did a few things but could only eat a small amount of soup, which came out as diarrhea. Went to bed last night and just got out of bed at 12:30 this afternoon and I am exhausted. I've been drinking gatorade, but have no appetite at all. When I got up this morning I had diarrhea. I am so weak, I can't believe it. My entire family has had this, but everyone else has been fine after 36 hours. Any suggestions? Am I having a harder time because I have no colon? Not sure what to eat, what to drink. I never ever get a stomach virus so this is all new to me, especially without a colon.

I am so sorry you got "it"...if you think you are dehydrated (or going in that direction), go to the ER and get an IV. We dehydrate so much faster than the normal pooping person and sometimes cannot recover by ourselves:(

I hope you feel better soon (((HUGS)))

Hi Janie,

I posted on the other link. Same suggestion. You need an IV or 2. Rosemary

this is a rough rough stomach virus giong around, i would agree that you may need to go for some fluids. My dad had to go thursday and he goes to the bathroom normal, lol.
I had it too and it was 4 or 5 days before i didnt feel like throwng up everytime i ate. And if i had to go to the bathroom like a normal person i would have been passed out in the bathroom!

Thanks everyone. I ended up going to ER sat. night for fluids. I was dehydrated. This virus was horrible and I finally feel like eating today. Hope no one else gets it, although hospital told me it was going around and was "fast and furious"....well, it was furious for me, but not so fast...hung on a little longer than the 36-48 hours it was supposed to!!
