Bupring After Lap Band Surgery

by Rich
(Wantagh, NY)

I had lap band surgery on Monday. I came home yesterday and since I've been home I can't stop burping.

Frequent burping after gastric banding is a common complaint...especially "pb'ing" or "productive burping."

To help minimize it, make sure you're taking small bites and chewing food thoroughly. If you're on liquids only, try taking in smaller amounts at one time.
