I understand that you have been experiencing extreme diarrhea for the past few days, and it seems to be happening every time you eat. It's important to note that several things, including changes in diet, medication side effects, or an underlying medical condition, can cause diarrhea. I recommend talking to your surgeon about this issue as soon as possible, as they may want to do some tests or adjust your diet to help alleviate your symptoms. In the meantime, you may try avoiding foods known to cause diarrhea, such as high-fiber foods, spicy foods, and foods high in sugar. Drinking plenty of Water and other clear fluids can also help to prevent dehydration. And it's important to note that if these symptoms persist or you have any other concerning symptoms, please seek immediate medical attention.

Just a thought but did they remove your gall bladder when they found your stone and if so how long ago? Diarrhoea can be a side effect of having your gall removed. (Takes time for the body to get used to not having gall to regulate the acid entering your stomach.) Mine persisted for about two months after my surgery though not as severe as yours. My surgeon advised if it persisted or got worse I was to contact him.

      tl:dr at bottom,
      I could use some advice. I went to see my dietician today (not a bariatric surgery dietician, I can explain why I am seeing her if you want to know). She knows I am going to have weight loss surgery as long as I hit the goal weight my insurance told me I need to be at. I have to be at the goal weight by June 24, 2023, in order for my insurance to pay for my surgery.
      I had a weigh in the doctor's office a couple of days ago and weighed 301, my scale at home said 302. However, on the same day, the scale at a friend's house said 313. 
      I knew I had this Dietician appointment two days later and I knew she would weigh me. I continued to weigh myself at home (after getting new batteries) and I was at 302 then 299 and today at home I weighed 303, right before my appointment, when I got to her office I was weighed and it said 313.
      I am concerned about what to believe since the doctor's office and my scale show similar numbers. I also bought a new scale today and it said 313. 
      The Dietician told me I needed to eat more protein, which honestly I struggle with. she said I needed 150 grams!!  I said are you kidding? that seems like a lot.  She used my weight to come up with this number. 
      Should I really be trying to eat enough protein for a 300-lb person or should I be eating protein for a goal-weight person (mine is 170)?   
      also, my clothing is loose like I lost the 20 lbs mine and the doctor's scale shows, and not 10 lbs like everyone else's scale shows. Also, I have always naturally been more muscular even when I was 120 lbs and did not eat any protein aside from what is in plants. 
      tl:dr- should I be eating enough protein to support a 300lb person or should I be eating protein for a "normal" sized person? AND should I trust the Doctors scale more so than the Dietician's scale?

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
