Anyone have burping issues before and have them go to not really having them after surgery? Any woman deal better with menopause better after? Anyones headaches reduce? Just things i wonder if they get better after the surgery? Because some people say that there are affected for being overweight.

omg...I would let out an occasional burp pre-op, like after drinking a diet coke too fast...but now I burp all the time: after i eat a meal, a snack, a Vitamin, and after I drink fast or drink slow.

As for headaches, I feel like I get them more now (but I'm thinking it may be because of a growing need for glasses).

Can't comment on the menopause, but my period went back to being clockwork-regular! I was verrrrry regular until about 5-6 years ago, which I thought was because I was becoming pre-menopausal. Looks like my weight was the cause as I've gone back to being able to predict my period almost to the day again since about 1 month post-op.

Burping is a bit more after surgery for me than before. Nothing drastic, though. I have been in menopause for several years before my surgery last October (I had early menopause), and since surgery, I’ve actually had no night sweats and less hot flashes. Not sure if the two are related, but I’m happy. As for headaches, I haven’t noticed a difference in them. I still have tension headaches or sinus headaches occasionally.

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
