I am only 1 month out so please forgive me for my impatience - but when, if ever, do the tummy gurgles go away?  Does that mean I am taking bites that are too large or eating too fast or is it normal?  Happy Friday to everyone!!!

im 8 months out...still have them as we speak. Are you taking a PPI? If not, maybe consult your surgeon for one.

Yes, I take prescription-strength Prilosec.  It is definitely a reminder to eat correctly but I just hate that it reminds everyone else in the room too - ha ha.  Thank you for your response.

 Nope.  Mine diminished a lot since surgery but they still pop up here and there.

6m out and still have them.  beverages are worse for me.  I think I swallow too much air.

I do not have acid issues.

My mom is 9 years out from her RNY and I can hear her gurgles from across the room on a daily basis.  That's one of the reasons I didn't want the RNY.  Lucky for me, I do not have this issue.  The first few days I did, but I realized it was from eating Sorbitol.  Once I quit sorbitol, my tummy was feeling great.  No more gurgles.

I am only 3 months out, so I get them a lot, and it bothered me in the beginning.  At my one month checkup, I asked about it and Dr. Binenbaum said I may have them forever.  So, I decided to like them.  They don't hurt, and I think of them as a reminder to eat slowly, chew a lot and stop before I finish if I start to get uncomfortable.

6+ years out and I do have them, but infrequently and ever so more quietly, almost like a normal stomach :)

It does get better, but for years, I was soooo embarrassed by them!
