No hunger since Nov 2018

Posted , 2 users are following.

I haven't felt my stomach growl since the end of Nov. I found out I had a bad gallbladder so I had it removed in middle of Jan 2019. It's been almost 4 weeks since it was removed and I still have no hunger. I can eat meals and keep the food down I just never feel hungry. I was told the gallbladder was the reason for my loss of appetite but now I am doubting that to be the case. I have had an endoscopy which he told me I had a mild case of gastritis. I went to a different doctor and he told me that I don't have gastritis. So I am just lost and don't know where to turn. I have had multiple blood tests done and they all come back normal. I know something isn't right with my stomach. I am going this Tuesday to do a stomach emptying study. If anyone has any other suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. I live in the United States on the East coast. I am willing to travel wherever to the best doctors, I just want to be better and over this!

    Just like you Mike I started loosing my appetite in November. Since then I have lost 25 lbs. And continuing. I have lost 4-6 inches off my waist. I have been put thru a gamma of tests I have had 3 CT scans, hiiata scan, endoscopy, colonoscopy and a gastric emptying study. I have rapid gastric emptying. It is crazy. If I don't force myself to eat I won't. I usually only eat 1x a day and that is a small meal. They have said nothing is wrong except my gall bladder is not working properly. I am scheduled to see the surgeon on April 3 but there is no guarantee that removing it will help. I am interested in hearing. More about your situation and what you find out and I will keep you posted also.
