Hi Sam! Just a quick hello, haven't been able to get on my computer for a few days. Can't help with the burp situation but wanted to say hang in there! Will catch up on posts when I get to my pc (am reading on my phone). Hugs!
Hang in there...it does get easier! The first week minor little burps were painful, but a hiccup was AGONY!!! I think that took about a week to 10 days and then it totally went away. Sadly, hunger returns when those annoying pains go way. So look on the bright side! :)
Dianne, Thanks for at least letting me know i'm not some freak of nature :) I know it'll get better, it's just annoying for now. That and I really really want to sleep curled up on my side. *sigh* Soon
I had the same feeling! And it lasted for 2 weeks post op. It was horrible, because, for me, it really hurt when I couldn't burp. My surgery was April 26. Funny, you are the only other person that I have heard talk about it. :) I think, however, that it might be a sign of having "good restriction" from the get-go. Which I think is nice.
