Ooh yea many people mention this on here. My stomach starts the second I start eating and doesn’t stop for at least an hour afterwards. It’s funny cause at over a year out I don’t notice it anymore until someone on here mentions it.

Mine still does almost three years out. Like on & off all day long. When I eat. After I eat. When I drink. It will rumble & moan at night when I rest my iPad on my abdomen. Sometimes it rumbles more after dairy (with or without lactose). I have even had to apologise for the noise. My young nieces & nephews think it’s hilarious too. After surgery it’s likely from the acid in your empty stomach. After it’s just your digestive system working properly. Rarely is related to hunger as most people presume.

YES!!!!! OMG it's annoying and when it gets loud, it's embarrassing lol I just tell it to pipe down, that it already ate (I take a few sips and then say it). Doesn't really help, but it makes me feel better lol

3.5 years out for me; and my stomach, like @Arabesque’s is still talking its head off all the time.

Yesterday i went for a massage and it was going on and on for 90 mins. At first the masseuse was quiet about it, but then I could hear her giggling about 30 mins into it. People don’t normally hear it/react to it, but it was quiet in the room…it was hard to ignore. 🤷🏻‍♀️

She asked me if i wanted some fruit. 😂

Mine goes crazy too but it's never hunger. It is always when I am eating and sometimes when I take my first first sips of my Fluid after eating.

Last night you could hear it over the TV.

My gremlin is very talkative. Last night, it was very vocal during my evening tea drinking. It was worse immediately post surgery but definitely still noisy 8-9 months out. This is the new normal!

Mine was loud at the beginning, but now it's only loud occasionally. But, my mom and cousin also have very loud stomachs and they didn't have surgery, so it doesn't seem that weird to me.

Wait so the churning I have at night isn’t an ulcer? lol thank God! And it’s always on cue too. I know I’m not hungry maybe not even thirsty. It’s uncomfortable at times and wakes me up. No heartburn or anything in my chest just my stomach. Does go away if I ignore it or take a antacid..

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
