Sleeved, now what to do about the gurgling noises?



Recommended Posts

I was released this afternoon from the hospital. I hated their Protein Shakes, way too sweet, so drank milk. Now that I am home, I am noticing a ton of loud gurgling noises coming from my new stomach. I want to finish half of my shake, but these noises are freaking me out.

Help? Advice? Should I just do broth for a couple days and slowly add the shakes?

They are now our new normal. We gurgle. It's ok. we are going to gurgle no matter what, so I learned to ignore my little gurgler.

Ok, it makes me nervous to eat Protein. I figured, I would stay with broth and light liquids for a couple days, then add the shakes by the weekend.

Does gas x help the bubbles??

The gurgle is annoying, but normal. As a matter of fact, the gurgling was so loud when I went to bed tonight that my husband was freaking out about the noise. My kids think that it is hilarious, especially when it is quiet and my gurgler goes off.

I'm over 2.5 years out - and I still gurgle... its something you will get used to. - Also my throat makes noises - not so much a burp - but more a burp inside my throat - thats 'normal' too - well it is for me. Congrats on getting the surgery

@ I have the throat gurgling thing too. Good to know it not unusual. I didn't figure it was too weird, since I've been doing really great since my surgery.

I'm almost 3 months out and I have loud gurgles for about 15 minutes after every meal and then it stops

My gurgling mostly stopped several weeks after surgery once the swelling had gone down. Now it's only occasional.

I have the gurgling too especially after I eat and that also is away for me to know I am full. ;-)

        I've been a member since 2008, but just now decided to go ahead with surgery. Barely getting started 😁

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
