  • Cramping, diarrhea and nausea lasted for a LONG time for me. But I had a hard time adjusting to a new diet. I know other people that never had any of that after surgery. SO it all depends.

    Make sure you are not eating greasy, fatty foods. Look at the fat content of everything you are eating. Eat mostly whole grains, fruits and veggies with lean proteins.

    Good luck, it sucks, but it won't last forever.

  • My friend was out of work for 3 weeks and came back part time for another 2. I would call to be sure you are healing correctly though.

  • I had my remove about six months ago and had the same question for my sister and daughter who had their removed years ago. They say that your system is never the same. I've notice that certain foods tend to set my stomach off.
