So I learned something new today! Hiccups are a side-effect of the surgery! Ack!

I couldn't figure out what that weird feeling was, as sometimes they aren't quite a whole hiccup. I might only get one or two hiccups too.

Mine are uncomfortable, not just annoying. Just feels like pressure.

I looked it up and it's VERY common post surgery supposedly. Many people have said they'll go away within a month, fingers crossed.

Hiccups are caused when the diaphragm is irritated or for many lap-band patients when they eat too much.

Perhaps my stomach is just super sensitive right now though because I'm definitely not eating too much!
