Hi all...
ok... i just can't take it anymore without dying of embarassment!! :< Practically everytime i take a drink of anything... i belch! I've never had this problem before the op.... i'm working on the theory that with all of the internal swelling in my throat after the op... that there is less room when i swallow for air... and i'm belching... constantly... repeatedly... forever!! Anyone else??? Any tips??? WHEN DOES IT STOP!!! lol At least me and my family can laugh about it... but can't say for everyone else when i'm out or heaven forbid when i go back to work...

Anxiously awaiting advice from my fellow belchers lol :D

  • Diamonde, I had the exact same thing. I could feel the bubble start in my sternum and work its way up until I had to burp. I have no idea why it happened, but it did go away after a few weeks. I couldn't do anything about it, though, so I can't give you any tips to stop it. All part of the game, I guess.

    I'd forgotten about it, so thanks for the reminder. :-)
