Can we say "it's long after someone does something"? For example "It's long after I am going out. I haven't gone out for two years."

    KB has given examples of how you can say what was intended in that sentence.

    As for "long after…", I can't think of any context in which you'd use it preceded by "it is" (present tense).
    Here are a few examples of its use:

    My grandmother took a job in a local store long after retiring from her career as a teacher.
    Long after he [had] left, we still missed him.
    Sometimes an ailment recurs long after it was thought to have been cured.
