I'm 5 days post-op and I cannot stop burping! Every time I ingest anything- *burp.* It's most disconcerting! Is this a liquids stage thing or something I'm going to have to deal with forever? This is so distressing! I was raised with very good manners and right now I feel like a 12 year old boy showing off to his friends. Otherwise, the "winds" aren't too bad, I assume that's still trapped air from the surgery making its way out and that it'll pass.

Just another "is this normal???" post.

What Alley said. My burping issues went away after about a week or so.

I’m having the same issue, but it’s slowly getting better. I’m looking forward to it being less of an issue. The first couple of days I felt like I was going to barf when the gas was coming up, but thankfully I didn’t.

Walk it off. You still have air/anesthesia in you. It'll pass . . . literally. 😀 This isn't a permanent thing.

I dunno....I am 2+ years out and still burp an insane amount. Not as ridiculous as the first few months, but still ALOT.

(Mind you I do eat/drink alot of gas-inducing items, so maybe if I limited those it would get better...?)

I’m 2 weeks out tomorrow and still burping a lot too. Especially after eating purées. It like bubbles up, like I feel like I can feel it bubble all the way from my tummy, then I have a second where I think oh **** it is throw up, and then it’s not just lots of saliva and a burp. I don’t know. I feel like I’m weird. 🤷🏼‍♀️🤣🤣

3 months post op and my burping is insane. I mean very bad. Even worse at night. My doc said he has seen more burping in lower BMI patients. He tells me it will subside one day. I also had a small hernia

I'm nearing 3 months out & still burp loads lol My surgeon said its due to eating or drinking too quickly but even when I'm mindful & time things I still get similar levels of gas!

It doesn't bother me much now but might when we're out of lockdown & I'm around other people :)

Im 3.5 months out and although I've never in my life been able to burp loudly there's a constant gurgling sound after I eat or drink now. My surgeon said it can last up to a yr and it's my new stomach learning to push out air.. i don't have any wind at all though

Warning, TMI.....

I have belched and burped since surgery, and have a lot of flatulence. Thank god it doesn't smell, but I have to be careful it isn't a little moist..... sorry.

As for bowel movements....two very small, extremely hard and painful motions onky, in 11 days.

Sigh....
