Anyone else hiccup when they are full?



Recommended Posts

I’m 18 months out and still hiccup when I am full. I love that I have this physical cue to STOP. I’m hoping it never goes away. And a bit terrified that it will one day. Wondering if anyone else has this or had it and it went away?

I've seen other people in the forums talk about getting this cue too.

I'm almost 4 months post-op and I get them when I'm full. I too, hope it stays.

No I just hiccup almost every time just before I vomit, so my fullness symbol would have to be something else. Truthfully I don't think I have had a true fullness signal in the 9 months, one where I stop eating and all is well with me! That's why I still am intimidated enough to never try things with much form to them. Tried to discuss this with Roy, my dietician. He like everyone else didn't listen. Kep telling me how wonderful I looked, how well HE THOUGHT I was doing. It's like drowning in a lake, calling for help and the only person with a life jacket is persisting in talking about how lovely the sunlight looks shining on the Water. Will it take me passing out or getting my blood chemistries out of whack before someone does listen?
I want to do things right, but fearful of swallowing and having it regurgitate again.

i have learned to stop before the hiccups. i also put the fork down between bites and not in a hurry. you will get full and feel it, doesnt take much anymore

Hiccups is my trigger as well. And they go away very quickly. It’s really odd but I don’t mind it.

Yes, but also when I eat too fast. I am working on finding a different clue to stop before I get to the hiccup stage.

Sometimes I get the hiccups, yes. Most often, if I get a pressure in my chest, that's my ultimate warning sign to stop! I must admit, the latter happens if I'm not paying attention and eat too fast >_>

I'm less than a month out, so I'm still learning these new cues😉

Be PERSISTENT on talking to your program support people. I'd even recommend calling your surgeon, if your program allows that. This is NOT normal, and you DESERVE to this addressed. I sometimes still get this cue, but at 23 months it's MUCH harder to feel full than it was at 1st. O don't often have that regurgitation issue anymore, but I DID have it consistently, and for a while. HATED. IT!! & it still occasionally happens, but now rarely. ALWAYS when I have too much or, more likely, eat too FAST! But if you're following all the guidelines and still regularly having this problem, call your surgeon so they can help! It could be a sign of something else happening, and you'll want to know that! Good luck!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
