Runny Nose When Full



Recommended Posts

My bariatrics team says that a runny nose is common after eating a large meal for us gastric sleeve people. It's something about a nerve. Does anyone know any more about this.?

Yes, it's a fairly common symptom.

I sneeze. Twice.

Two is the number of the sneezes.

Three sneezes do not happen.

One sneeze is right out, lest there be a second sneeze in quick succession.

Of the sneezes there shall be two.

Good Luck,

Tek

It seems to have to do with the Vagus nerve being messed with (cut, nicked, manhandled, or whatever).

Totally normal. It's the vagus nerve that does it. I get post-nasal drip which is really annoying.

Yup, I have it too when I’m full. Sometimes hiccups. I heed the warnings too because the foamies are AWFUL.

Two sneezes? Too easy.

I sneeze half a dozen times. Maybe a dozen if I overeat.

LOL.

I was just saying to my husband the other day that I get a runny nose when I’m full. Glad to hear it’s normal :)

Yes, I get a runny nose and hiccups. I actually like having these fullness cues. Do they last forever or only in the first year?

For me, 18 years post op, I still do it.

I don't often eat to fullness so it doesn't often happen. I still control portion size more than I rely on sneezing to know when to stop. Sneezing means: Warning: don't take another bite.

Some days it's after 3 bites of food. Most days I don't encounter "full."

I don't want to push the envelope often for fear, real or imagined, that the envelope will grow.

Good luck,

Tek

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
