So I read elsewhere that a lot of people are reporting that they start sneezing when their pouch is full or their eyes/nose start running. That's so weird! Anyone here experience that sort of thing too? I know there's hiccuping and burping, but sneezing seems like such a strangely attached reaction to a full pouch :D

So funny! I didn't know this til my nutrition class pre-op when they told us to look for cues. My daughter is only 20 and hasn't had the surgery but ever since she was small her nose runs after eating a meal and she has to blow her nose. I swear it's because she is full! I never knew.

My surgeon explained that during the surgery, the Vagus Nerve is cut and that's what causes the runny noses response when the pouch is full. Kind of interesting and tons of stuff on the interwebs about it.

Yep! I get a runny nose as I eat and if I've filled my pouch/sleeve, I do what I call "machine-gun sneezing" where I just sneeze over and over again. We're talking like 10 or 15 times in a row!

I generally try to avoid that, so I stop before I get to that point. It's one thing to sneeze like typhoid Mary in private, but you get some strange looks in the office or in a restaurant.

HAH! That's insane! My work "brothers" will be all over this. My team is me and 3 other guys - we're like family :P They call me rapid-fire so I sneeze enough as it is....I can already hear the new nicknames flowing in! :D I wonder if anyone has ever sneezed themselves to death :1421_nose_tone2:

I did sneeze in the beginning when I started on puree but it did not last long, now I only burp when I'm full which I never did before surgery, but I'm so ok with that...thankful for the sign and restriction YES!!

I get hiccups very often now which was never a thing pre-surgery. Its definitely associated with eating and drinking but not necessarily a "you had enough" sign. I think it just has to do with the new layout of the stomach and the way air gets trapped/moves throughout.

Having to blow your nose is a definite sign you are full

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I meanย ย grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
