I had the DiVinci Prostate surgery on Sep 2nd. Removal of the entire prostate with a little extra tissue for safety. I'm having continuing lower abdomen gurgling going on. Is this common? My doctor didn't seem concerned but I sure wish it would stop, its been 7 weeks! No problems with urinary function and erections are improving with meds.........did the shot once but I'm gonna avoid doing that again if I can. Main concern now is just this darn gurgling.

Is the gurgling the same as you'd hear on an empty stomach? If so, does eating a small snack every so often help?

Normal bowel, etc.......everything seems to be normal except the gurgling. It seems like normal stomach gurgling except it is much lower and eating doesn't affect it.

Have you made ANY type of change to your diet? Maybe found a new food product?
