Who else's stomach growls really loud (and I really mean loud) when you get hungry? I hear my stomach growling, which should mean I'm hungry, but I don't always feel hungry when it growls. Anyone else have this?

Mine sounds like water going down a drain. Generally it doesn't mean I am hungry. The funniest was last week when I had to go for fasting blood tests, it was so loud the phlebotomist could hear it!

The loud growling is driving me a little nuts too. Strangers have stared at me in line at the bank or grocery store when it gets going. It wasn't like that before the band. I'm hungry all of the time it seems, and when it's growling like that I just can't stand it. Drinking during a growl fest just makes it louder somehow.

does this get better as you get more restriction? I have my 2nd fill coming up on 11/5 (every 6 weeks... very conservative practice)

omg, too weird, i experience this all the time---like right now as a matter of fact. I think it has to do with things empting out of our small pouch into the remaing stomach. nothing to worry about, but could be a little embarassing.

I also have the same problems. Its loud. My practice also only does fills every 6 weeks. My next to 2nd fill in next wednesday. I hope it gives me more restriction then I have now.

Haha! Mine does it all the time.
I'm never really hungry now, but my stomach just goes and goes and it's loud enough for people in the cubicles next to mine to hear it when I'm at work.
