Does anyone esle suffering form loud gargulling noises coming from there stomach? I have been told not to worry about and its actually a good sign because it means the food is moving through you? It doesnt hurt, it can just be uncomfortable at times, and produces alot of gas. And for some reason it tends to be worse/soley at night time when i am laying in bed, and lately its been getting louder and louder, to the point where i am embarrassed to even sleep with a girl next to me.
 
Anyone suffer formt he same problem? and have any advice on how to handle this and/or reduce the sensations?

If you aren't taking any probiotics you might want to add that to your daily meds. There are lots of different ones available, you just want to make sure you get a good quality one. It will take a few weeks to see if it works for you. You might have to try several brands before you find one that works for you. I had to go through about 4 brands before I found one that worked but it made a huge difference. I was having lots of gurgling and gas, but I have almost none now.

its common for me.. before a stricture gets to small to move food. pressure builds up behind the stricture and then as it squirts past the narrowed part you get the loud sound with some feeling of movement, is that what your feeling? then much gas as you fart away the night?

It's usually a sign of a stricture, and takes more effort to force the food through.

I also get it basically everyday, it does vary from day to day to how much it does it. It's not as bad now since I had my resection but it can still be embarrassing when you are sitting with a group of people and they ask what the that noise is! lol I just tell them not to worry its just my stomach talking again, I have got so used to it and every body I know, that it doesn't disturb me any more.

Hey Canadian,

I take Primadolphilus Reuteri by Natures Way. It can be found in the refrigerated area of your local health food store. Works great for me.

Good luck!

I tried the one that Nanners takes but it didn't work for me, and a few other brands too. I take Align now, but I have found that PB8, which is a bit cheaper works pretty well too. I had totally given up on all probiotics because the ones I tried made things worse. But through trial and error I found a few that make things better. If things start to get a bit out of hand I just take 2 a day for a week and get things back under control again.

tiredguy, since its getting worse over a period of time, it would be wise to have your GI test for a developing stricture. Meanwhile, an anti-gas such as Gas-X might help while you pursue longer term help.

Let us know if you are developing a stricture, feedback helps us all help each other better.
