Severe Hunger pains after gallbladder removal
Hello. I am a 40 ye old female. I had gb removal a year ago and have recently started severe hunger pains throughout the day?? They come suddenly so I feel like I might projectile vomit at times. Usu don't last long. Seems like if I eat they go away but it happens even when I should not b hungry?? I had these symptoms briefly just before the surgery also but not near as bad. Also tried drinking alcohol 4 mths after surgery and less than 1 drink projectile vommiting.again tried after 1 year and same result… I take ppi twice a day but otherwise healthy 110 lbs no medical issues. Hate feeling like this. Any suggestions welcome plz

Hi @misslisa that must be so frustrating to have these hunger pains.
I wanted to share this thread on back pain after gallbladder removal as you will find others who have had the same or similar procedure: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/post-cholesectomy-gallbladder-removal-chronic-back-pain/
I also would like to tag fellow Connect members : @claytamos @kozlo52, @roisemaire, @paula1957, @sq2753sw, @johnetteg, and @bertbiz as they have all had their gallbladder removed and may be able to share their experience, and whether they had similar symptoms.
Back to you @misslisa, what has your doctor told you about these hunger pains? How much food does it normally take to make them go away?
Thank u so much. I recently saw the Dr. And she doubled my Prilosec . Suppose to Fu if it doesn't help. Says it could take 6 weeks if it is an ulcer. I don't feel like I have an ulcer. No burning feeling etc. However when I feel the pains I do seem to belch a lot . As far as the food… It could be just a few bites of banana and it seems to help? The feeling is like an hollow feeling…gnawing at my stomach like severe hunger.
Hey this recently has been happening to me I had my gb removed in August and almost straight after a week later I had pains I was back in hospital found out I had acute gastritis, that cleared up a few weeks later and I been fine eating what I want till almost a week ago I’m getting these intense like hunger pains almost similar to the gallbladder attacks I’m worried the gastritis is back but I hope it’s not going to last long
