I was banded on 9/11 so I am 5 days post-op now. I get 60 grams of protein in each day, and I don't really feel hungry too much. But I do have this constant stomach growling thing going on, which in the past would mean an instant snacktime. But if I really stop and pay attention when it growls, I don't feel hungry. Anyone else have this issue? How can you tell the difference between head hunger and physical hunger? I am drinking throughout the day and have SF popsicles as a "snack". So I don't feel like I need any more, but my stomach won't stop growling!!! What's up with this??

Seriously... I do meeting on an almost daily basis in work as a nurse, and I am finding I am having to shout to be heard Over the sound of my own stomach... I can hear it growling "please louise, were r my pies, crisps and chocolate, feed me, feed me" It's like a baby, I have tried to ignore it, but it's trying every trick in the book!! Just as I am about to speak with a doctor or a patients relatives.. It shouts out "feed me or I will embarrass you" Some times a rubble, so loud the other day, the kids thought it was storm.. Sometimes a screech or a loud burb, anything to distract me and get my attention!! It's even started growing during love making!! But I tell you now stomach growly monster, u have had your fair share of pies, crisps and chocolate, In fact more then most have in a life time, well the funs over, so you can growl, scream and cry all you want, this lady ain't for giving in!

Me either!! I haven't given in at all....mostly because I can't give in. I'm only a few days out so there isn't really much I can cheat with. But sometimes this growling is just plain painful!

Noisy stomachs do not mean you are hungry. Mine does it all the time, often after I have just eaten. Its a common part of banded life so you may find you need to get used to it.

Congrats on your surgery! You will learn that your stomach will make all kinds of noises from gurgling to growling, which seems to be perfectly normal I think. Best wishes to you!

I was banded 9/11 and my stomach has been a loud commentator ever since! I'm not hungry and I have no urge to cheat on my liquid diet. It is rather funny. I hope it settles down some before I go back to work next week. That could prove interesting...LOL

I envy you guys. I'm starving. And nothing makes me feel better. Anyone know if a dairy free protein? I have found out I have a dairy issue
