Hi everyone! I am currently 10 days post op and am having a lot of issues with burping... ALL DAY LONG. And the burps smell. I am back at work and it is very embarrassing. Any one else have this problem? I am drinking small sips, eating slow, but even when I am not eating or drinking I am belching.

I have problems with burping from time to time, usually when I eat too quickly. It is a fact of life sometimes....

Reach out to your team, So early in your recovery you will have lots of strange things happening. I burp occasionally, continuous burping is not normal and it must be awful for you. There will be some medication you can take. I live in England so I cant recommend any. I hope you get some help

I second contacting your team. That’s not a typical thing I don’t think. Maybe you still aren’t eating as slow as your body requires this early out but if that’s not it then your doctor needs to know.

Could be something you’re eating too like the lactose in your shakes/protein powder. (If you’re not digesting lactose well post surgery - not uncommon.) But definitely contact your medical team.

I used to burp occasionally in the beginning, but not excessively.

Re: smell, are you sure it is the burps, or is it Keto breath (or a combo of the two)? I was seriously stinky for the first couple of months. It got better as my diet normalized.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
