I was ok. thursday & Friday. Friday I had chicken rice soup;a buttered roll;Mashed potatoes. i slept thru the night & then Saturday Morning i was sick again!1 sat. I just had Chicken Broth & Ginger Ale. This morning i was sick again. I am VERY WORRIED NOW!! DO YOU THINK THAT THIS IS REALLY SERIOUS? Should I get some blood tests?

Hi
Gastrointestinal infections can be caused by viruses,bacteria and parasites.It is possible that your infection was not cleared completely. Do not worry.Take up stool culture sensitivity to know the pathogen causing the infection and its antibiotic susceptibility. Take liquids more and Oral Rehydration solution to keep yourself hydrated.Continue taking light diet.Include yoghurt in diet.Take care!

Hi
My opinion you should get a stool culture
To understand what is happening, accordingly we can decide if you need an antibiotic or a colonoscopy
Good Luck
