Tummy Rumbling

Tawnykakers1 Posts: 207 Member
Since my surgery I do not feel hungry and I don't get that gurgling noise when my tummy is empty. The second I eat food it sounds like a monster in there with all the rumbling and gurgling. I eat slow and at the most it is about 1/2 cup of food. Does anyone else get this? Should I be concerned?

    I feel almost the same way, except I do get "hungry". But it is not like the old hunger, more of an empty feeling and the need for more fuel--difficult to explain. I do hear lots of noises as I eat and for a bit afterwards. This happens no matter how carefully I chew or no matter what the food may be. I am also eating about 1/2 cup total. Sometimes 1/4 cup protein and 1/2 cup soft pureed or chopped veggies, but I can't quite finish it the veggies.

    It is odd to hear the noises--you'd think we'd hear less coming from smaller stomachs!

    It definitely gets noisy after surgery, but it either settles down or you get used to it, in any case it's not been a problem for me.

    Good to hear its not just me. It was just one of those little things that I wasn't sure about it. So I guess I am normal! lol

    Yeah, things are much noisier, sounds like bubbles and drains being unclogged

    Tons of noises post-op! It does get better, but it still pops up at weird times.

    Mine was embarrassing! So many loud noises. But it did eventually go away after a few months.
  • Oh goodness - in the beginning it was INSANELY LOUD. Thank goodness, though, it has settled down tremendously for me. :-)

    I don't believe it actually goes away, in my case. I think I've just gotten used to it, lol! But yes, loud! My son can hear it from a cross the room!

    Been over two years, and my weight is normal, and I eat normal, but the tummy is still noisy. My coworkers grin when we're sitting in a meeting and it starts gurgling. They think I'm just hungry all the time, but it doesn't need to be empty to sing. It's just a conversational little thing...
