It depends: Some people never have trouble with it, and some have near constant problems. See how you do in the first 6 week after, though it often gets better after that kind of time frame.

Variable time: Some people have no diarrhea afterwards. Of those that do, it usually resolves after a few weeks. Avoiding fatty and fried foods usually helps. If the diarrhea persists, there is a medicine that can help with it.
