Feeling of empty (hallow) stomach, or feeling extremely hungry is a common symptom of very low blood sugar. I had Whipple surgery in 2002. I had low blood sugar when on oral meds for diabetes diagnosed after surgery. I am now on low dose insulin injections taken nightly (long acting). On occasion, my blood sugar goes low enough to feel it, but not extreme. If you are experiencing low blood sugar, you should see your doctor since it may be an indication of problems with insulin production in the pancreas. This could be a precursor in general for diabetes. Just go have it checked out. If blood sugar goes low enough, it can be quite dangerous.
