6 Weeks, Stomach Hunger Pains Or Acid?



Recommended Posts

Im about to be at my 7 week mark on monday and for the past week or so whenever i dont eat or drink I feel a pain in my gut almost like hunger pains or maybe acid. I have been taking my prilosec daily so i dont know why the acid would be so bad. whenever i eat the pain stops for 10 or 15 minutes then comes back. Anyone have any ideas?

Where in your gut? I had some sharp pains on the right side, below the rib cage, which was probably gallstones..... They eventually subsided after a few weeks. Happens with rapid weightloss....

Wow!! I have totally been going through the same thing!! My surgery was on 2/13. Sounds like the same day as yours, as Monday is also my seven week mark. For a week or so now I have been downright HUNGRY!! I get that gnawing sensation after any food has left my stomach. At night is the WORST! If I was smart, I'd go to bed earlier, because it just drives me nuts. I've heard it said that it takes a good couple of months to get the grehlin hunger hormone out of your system. I sure hope that's true.

I know mine is not acid, since i've been taking stuff for that for the better part of 25 years. I'm more than familiar with what acid feels like. Way too familiar. This is hunger, NO doubt.

That kind of pain was the first sign of gallstones for me. Now that I've had my gall bladder out, I'm way less "hungry".

I don't know about ToddG, but I said goodbye to mr gallbladder 10 years ago. :/

I had sugery on 2/10 and I have had the same knawing feeling in my stomach. I am taking 3 prilosec per day (total of 60 MG) and a zantac at night and have been good the last couple of days. My GI dr gave me a prescription for Nexium to try but my surgeon suggested 60 mg of prilosec first.

I dont think its acid anymore. for the past 3 days i've had a constant pain with nausea feeling in my stomach. Its that feeling of being so hungry you feel like you have to throw up. I hope this goes away soon. I have a follow up appointment on thursday so i'll find out something then.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
