Rumbling after eating

It seems that 90% of the time right after I eat my stomach (lower right quadrant) constantly rumbles and makes a lot of gurgeling noises.  This last probably an hour after I eat.  It doesn't matter if I eat something small or a large meal or spicy or mild.

Lately I've been more hungry than normal.  My routine is: protien shake at 7:30am then a banana around 9:30 then I'm hungray again at 11:30.  I eat lunch at 12:30 then by 4:30 I'm hungry again, but don't eat until 8 p.m. and I wake up starving.

I've gained 10 lbs in 6 months (mostly in the last 3 months).  I can't seem to get filled up.  

My stomach looks like it is bloated all the time.

I'm not sure what is going on.  

I'm 42 1/2 yrs old, weigh 144 lbs and am 5/6".

I'd appreciate any advise you may have.
