I had six centimeters of my stomach removed in 2010. Sometimes it seems I get hungry easily. Could that be from malabsorption because of the surgery?
No. I was wondering if having my terminal ileum and a small section of my colon is what is making me get hungry quickly.Stomach or bowel Ron? If the stomach, then you likely have a reduced capacity and probably eat smaller quantities. Not sure how much of a malabsorption effect it would have, otherwise I don't think those weight loss surgeries would be approved. In the bowels though, I think you would much more likely see this problem. In some areas it could be quite significant. Have you checked with your GI?
ThanksI, too, have had bowel resection and malabsorption issues, but I don't think it affects my appetite. There are times when I know my Vitamin C is low and I crave foods rich in vitamin c, but I think any nutrients your body is lacking, it gives signals that it is need of them. I would ask your GI.
