I'm 2 days post op and I have been coughing and belching every morning. Sometimes throughout the day. I use my spirometer 10x an hour as requested by my doc and I tend to cough up spit. Not necessarily phylem.. what can I do to help with this?

It’s most likely gas this early on. I did an insane amount of burping the first few weeks (no coughing, though).

I may be wrong, or could just me my own personal experience, but I think burping is par for the course, especially for sleevers (were u sleeved?). The nature of the surgery results in higher than normal pressure build up in there, which can result in lotsa burping (or lots of release out the other end, lol).

I am almost 2 years out and I still burp like a teenage boy. Not as much as the early weeks, but enough to consider it alot.

P.S. I still take PPI’s every other day.
