Yes, the sounds will settle down. I recommend eatimg many smaller meals throughout the day to help with that.
And yes, there is definitely an adjustment period! Your stomach and stoma are still swollen. Once the swelling goes down, your surgical discomfort goes away, and you will start to feel like you again. In a month or so you will feel MUCH more normal. Glad you're on the road to health!
