Hi folks,

Might be a strange question, but earlier I had a few hiccups and a burp, after which I felt strange and had a brief burning sensation in my abdomen.

Could this be a sign that my wrap has undone? Please say no, I'm only 14 days post op tomorrow :(

Hi CF149,
Hiccups, I'm finding out are normal. Especially if you get something stuck in the wraps. That would also account for the burning sensation.
My feeling is the wraps should be pretty strong to be able to last. You might make it sore, but as for damaging them, I think you would have to do something far more than hiccups, coughs, sneezes, etc.
The surgeons would have to expect that these are commonplace and would make things sturdy enough to be able to handle these everyday occurrences. Now, I wouldn't be doing situps or pullups at this point, there are limits, but...

I am only at day 6 but had hiccups on day 2 and 3.......I wasn't worried and I haven't had them since......I am blaming gas for every strange feeling in guide is that if it moves it's gas......if I walk and it changes, it's gas.......I would hope that the wrap is secure enough to allow for normal function......I think a hiccup is more related to diaphragm??? Oh well, it's all so close......good luck!

I agree with Sleepyb and Michelle. I would imagine the warp should be strong enough to handle normal functions like hiccups and burps.
