I've named my new stomach Ariel, as in the mermaid. She's a Pisces and was born on March 3rd 2020, 2 weeks old today. She talks and gurgles, noisy little girl. I'm singing Under the Sea in my head as I type this, lmaooooo.

I call mine Gurgly Gail. She has a mind of her own, but still doesn’t know which way is up or down or If she’s hungry or not. My new tummy is also two weeks old today as well!!

I love the stomach names that's cute but I'm 3 months out and still gurgling and rumbling

I'm sorry, ask your surgeon. My Bariatric team said this was common for some patients post-op. This was also discussed in our classes required before surgery.

My friend is post-op 2 years and has been revised to rny for almost 1 year, her stomach is a talker. She named her stomach, Tiny Tummy aka TT.

After my first surgery in 1998 my stomach never quieted down, always had to have an after dinner conversation and I am finding it to be true after my bypass as well.

Mine only rumbles after I eat (well, drink because I don't move to soft foods until tomorrow). For someone who said they could hang with this lifestyle, she sure does have a lot of comments. Maybe I should come up with a name too. 🤔

To answer your post, I'm not sure when it stops rumbling. I did a quick google search and it said that this is typical and that sometimes antacids can calm it down, but I would definitely talk to your doctor before you consider taking anything. Actual doctor degree > My Google credentials 😅

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
