I can't find anything on the Internet, and my doctor is not very informative, on what I can expect long-term afterwards, i.e. weight loss, problems keeping weight on, diarrhea problems, vitamin deficiencies, etc. Any information is greatly appreciated.

I didn't have any digestion problems, vitamin deficiencies or bowel problems. Everything returned to normal quite soon after surgery and was only told not to eat any popcorn and stay away from mushrooms (they don't digest very well and my surgeon has done surgery for blockages on 2 people who ate mushrooms). I did have to be hospitalized twice for blockages when I was on chemo and ate too many raw vegetables (carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli).
Good Luck with your surgery.
