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!

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
