Stomach noises



Recommended Posts

I am about 2 months post-op and my stomach is very "loud" sometimes. I'm not sure what causes it, but I think its pretty common. I've read that it gets better with time. I've noticed that it gets worse when I've gone too long between meals or if I eat/drink too fast.

Stomach or intestine rumbling is not a sign of hunger. It's merely food slowly moving through your system. Don't use it as a cue to eat.

My stomach makes weird noises when it's trying to digest. I thought it was hunger—it felt like my stomach was being rubbed against itself—but it's not, it's just my stomach making weird noises.

Bubble gut (aka roid gut, HGH gut) is a different thing altogether. Unless you're injecting a bunch of so-called "research chemicals" into yourself, you don't have bubble gut.

Actually, I was just talking to my surgeon’s colleague this morning about the noisy poltergeist I have in my tummy. She laughed & said it’s a very common side effect but some are noisier than others. It’s caused by our body digesting & absorbing nutrients so it’s a good sign your body is doing what it’s supposed to be doing. She also said you can often see the ripples going across your abdomen as the digested food is passing through our digestive system. Guess what I’m going to do when it happens again 😆.

As @Sunnyway said it is not a sign you are hungry & should eat.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
