I had diarrhea/cramping for 7 years always thinking I was dumping and, believe it or not, I ran a support group for gastric bypass for 7 years and told my doctors of my problem. Then while on this site 3 years ago because, I couldn't take it anymore. I stumbled on to a little thing called gluten intolerance. Gave it try and, wow no more diarrhea/cramping. So it is all about food we intake. Keep a diary of your food and notice if there something setting it off more. A lot of gastric patient become lactose intolerance

It is normal to have diarrhea/cramping post operatively for awhile. Everyone responds differently to such a major surgery, so the length of time will vary from person to person.
And for sure as Babnurse said expect diarrhea and cramps if you have dumping from eating something that doesn't agree with you. That takes some time to sort out..... trying to pinpoint what you can and cannot tolerate. And that also changes the further out you get from surgery.
If you continue to feel lousy and diarrhea gets worse, probably should touch base w/ your doc.

Hi, How long a go was your gastric bypass? I had mine September 18, 2006. Intially I had diarrhea for the first several months due to mostly liquid diet and high protein post op .The last 5 years mostly constipation issues. What kind of foods are you eating? I have experienced dumping syndrome a few times when I have ate high fat or sugary foods. When this occured I had diarrhea, severe stomach cramps & nausea. Have you talked with your doctor?

Is it normal for someone who has had the RNY Gastric Bypass surgery and their Gall Bladder out to have Diarrhea and Tummy Cramps everyday?
