I had mine 11/28/11, still have it also. Alittle less than the beginning. My husband had the bypass awhile ago, he says it is because we take in air when we sip.

I am with you it is annoying. I hope it gets better too.

My surgeon suggested I place liquids at the back of my throat and then swallow. However we later discovered it was my CPAP machine filling me air, not that I was taking in air, but rather displacing it. I no longer burp a lot. Hopefully this helps.

I do not use a CPAP either. So hopefully time will help. I know my husband did this alot when he had his surgery, but it got better with time. It is embarassaing sometimes. It comes from nowhere!!!

Lets just hope it gets better.

I'm six months out, and I still burp a lot more than I used to. I find it often happens because I'm eating or drinking too fast, but that may just be me...

I burped after every sip for about the first month, then things got better. However, I still burp more frequently post-sleeve than I did before. There's just no room for air in the sleeve and I'd rather it came up than go down, if you know what I mean...
