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.
