Constant burping since surgery - RNY



Recommended Posts

I’ve had constant burping since surgery 6 days ago. My doctor doesn’t seem too overly concerned about it, but I’m curious if anyone else has had that experience, and did anything help?

Currently my PA had me stop taking any fluids (other than to take my pills) and I’m taking Gas-X.

I’m terrified of a leak, so any reassurance would be helpful :)

Walking kinda shakes the burps away

I think leaks are one of those things they discover pretty quickly after surgery - usually before you leave the hospital.

EDITED to add that I just checked. Yes - they can in fact appear a few days later, but what you described doesn't sound like a leak. Symptoms of a leak are rapid heartbeat, fever, chills, shortness of breath, low blood pressure, and several other things - but burping is not on that list.

In the beginning Burping was my sign telling me I was getting full & then some. I’m. 11 months out now & it’s greatly reduced but do still burp now & then.

That doesn’t seem to be the case for me which is why this seems odd. I burp from the time I wake up to the time I go to sleep, whether my stomach is empty or I’m sipping liquids. It started right away in the recovery room. So strange.

Hey i had this for the beginning too it just started clearing up by eating puree. I think the shakes were doing it and possibly drinking the oz of shake too close together. It comes back a little bit when i try to get some shake down

Im almost 2 years out and I still burp as often (and sometimes as loudly) as a teenage boy. I burp a liiiiitle bit less than before, but still quite alot (compared to pre-surgery). More after I eat/drink, but still even on an empty stomach.

P.S. I had the sleeve, though.
