Any ideas on how to make hiccups stop?

Im 2 and a half weeks post op. I had hiccups for 40 mins this afternoon in the middle of eating some ricotta cheese. Finally got them to go away.

A few hours later and they are back again. Didnt drink or eat anything for an hour prior. I'm occupying as I type.

Some people get hiccups if they have eaten too much.

What i try for hiccups is take a breath, hold it and try to swallow two times, repeat. Sometimes it works, other times not so well

Nexium. At least 1 x 20mg but don’t be afraid to take 2 tablets. I always suffered terribly from hiccups. Would have sore stomach & chest muscles for days after an attack. Even would vomit sometimes. Tried everything, all the old wive’s tales & Nexium was the only thing that would help. Takes a little while to work but the relief was bliss.
As a preventative, eat slowly. I find that helps too.

Oh, I have a weird one for you... instead of burping I hiccup. Ever since my surgery. It's bizarre as hell and it's not like constant hiccups, but like one or two and done. So weird! I don't know why it happens! That was how the gas was released following surgery too! The kept asking me if I was burping or... you know, and I'd always say 'no, but I hiccup' and they kept saying 'oh, that's good then'. -_-"

If you're not taking an antacid or gas relief then I would try one or both to gid rid of the hiccups.

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
