Hi! I had a fundo 3+ weeks ago. I was doing well...moving to soft sold foods. Then a week ago I started developing hiccups (50 a day) and also food is getting stuck at the wrap (feels like a constant stomach ache). I constantly feel like I have gas trapped in my upper abdomen (my doctor told me the gas would be lower GI, but I think that is wrong). My doctor put me back on the liquid diet for a few days, along with Ativan for the hiccups.
Will this upper GI bloat feeling go away? How long does it take? How long does it take before you can eat normally again? Did anyone else have the hiccups? They are totally wearing me out, along with losing a lot of weight from not being able to eat enough.
Thank you!

I would get the hiccups when I over ate. At 3 weeks you need to be still limiting to no more than 1/2 cup of food at the time.

I was still on liquids during your time. I didn't move on to soft foods until 4th week and it was more pureed like baby food.

I agree with couchtater 100%. Don't do too much too fast. Small, soft meals. You'll get there it just takes time! I know it's hard to not be able to eat what you want but you have to do it. It'll get better I promise!
