Hey everyone,

I'm noticing I'm starting to feel REALLY hungry since I had my GB removed Friday. It's a painful hunger too. Before I could go hours not realizing that I haven't eaten. Now it seems that I feel this empty stomach feeling every 2-3 hours. Is this normal??

Please tell me this goes away.

Can it be gas? Hope it goes away soon. ;)

I had my gallbladder removed 10 months post-op, in December. I haven't noticed any more frequent hunger since--immediately post-op I felt so awful I lost an additional five lbs. I hope what you are feeling is just temporary due to your surgical recovery.

It may be gas and I've tried gas x strips to no avail. I thought about increasing my nexium to twice a day to see if it helps. Thanks for the input!

Is it that time of the month? I had mine taken out two weeks ago and have to keep reminding myself to eat. My appetite finally came back yesterday.

Afro_cyster not my time yet. And even though I'm hungry all the time everything I eat tastes so nasty. It's like they took my taste buds too!

Ok, so now if you notice my stat, you'll notice a change. I was hungry ALL DAY yesterday. And I started today off hungry. I definitely do not like this I am sooooo close to Onderland.

I edited to add that everything I eat is so tasty.....lol. I truly have a sleeve of steel. There is nothing this thing won't eat.

HI, I had GB surgery about a month ago. I went for my check up the doctor said look at you that's too much weight you've lost!! I eat quite a bit now, use the bathroom constantly and wake up extremely hungry! I don't attribute the pain to gas! I am on pain meds for pain, and acid reflux. So I just down Water until I feel better. But yes I am crazy hungry no matter if I ate everything in sight!!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
