Post Bariatric surgery after I eat I start sneezing. Why?



Recommended Posts

I had bariatric surgery/ sleeve last July, 2014. I have lose 100 pounds. I am still losing weight just not as fast. Anyway, my issue is that after I eat a meal I start sneezing uncontrollably. Does anyone else have this problem?

Are you over eating? Different people have different reaction that tell them when they are full.Trying timing your meals and measuring to see if at a slower pace and a smaller amount you don't sneeze.

The vagus nerve runs along the top of the stomach, and it controls all sorts of involuntary upper body reactions/movements, like sneezing, hiccupping, and getting a runny nose. Lots of sleevers find that if they eat too much, their tiny stomach is so crammed full of food that it puts pressure on the vagus nerve, which gives you all sorts of weird reactions to being overfull - such as sneezing. So yes, reduce the amount you eat and eat more slowly, and you should find that the sneezing will likely go away. Good luck!

I have done this my whole adult life, before and after the sleeve! Whenever I eat too much, I sneeze. Always have. My grandmother had this too. I've always thought it had a genetic component to it. I hoped it might go away after the sleeve, but it hasn't. I don't overeat or eat too fast very often, so it's only happened a few times since the sleeve.

@@Bufflehead, your explanation is the best I've heard.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
