Stomach problems after a virus/probiotics?

5 weeks ago I had a bout of gastroenteritus for nearly a week. I recovered and seemed fine but at the weekend, I mistakenly ate something I am allergic to and it sent me into 24 hours of nausea, vomiting and diarrahoea. Here I am 4 days later and whilst I'm hungry and able to eat, I still feel slightly sick and still have loose stools (not exactly diarrhoea but not "right").

I wondered whether this was because my stomach is probably still not right from a week of illness and is probably sensitive? Does this sound right and if so, is it likely that probiotics might help? I don't like yogurts/etc so was wondering whether to buy some probiotic tablets but I realise they are expensive and not sure if this would help.

The pharmacist gave me charcoal tablets!

Any thoughts please?
