IBS and diarrhea

This may be a silly question, but one I need help with. I have not had WLS yet, still waiting for approval.

Why is it when I drink two pints of water and get diarrhea it seems like two or three gals of water come out. Where did all that extra water come from ?

When you are on a diet and you lose weight, people say it's only water weight, where was this water hiding ?

I have IBS, so I get diarrhea often, with all this water coming out, why ?

I hope this condition gets better after surgery.

 I can tell you that I have Ulcerative Colitis.  I have had no pain relief for the last 2 years.  Once I had my weight loss procedure and changed my diet, something changed.  So I have a feeling it had something to do with my diet.
