I have been burping a lot and I just had a TIF. Is that bad or good? My Dr. said it was ok. Everything I have heard said not to burp. I feel tight in the throat, I just want to know if burping is OK?

Hi Bette,

- Did you burp even before the TIF or is this new?
- Is burping causing the tightness in the throat?
- Did you eat anything that may be the root cause of the excessive burps?

Burping is okay after surgery. You swallow extra air during recovery. It will go away after your body adjusts.

I burp after everything I eat and drink. I didn't burp until the 4 days after surgery. It hurts to burp. I just cringe when I have to. Is there a way to not burp? The Dr said it was Ok but I am confused. I have many conflicting stories. I want to just give up. skull   How long is it gonna take to adjust?
 
I give up sad
 
I burped before surgery and now after. I have eaten jello, pudding, yogurt and protein drinks. My throat always feels tight even when I drink liquids.
 
I always feel like something is stuck. I guess I have to eat softer foods. This is not the way I thought it was gonna be. Patience is not my virtue. I guess I have no choice

I hiccupped for days after mine. I understand the frustration and pain.
Get you some Gas-x to help with the gas.
