That shit like this happens after gastric bypass. Ten years post op and I still hiccup like a drunken sailor if I take ONE BITE TOO MANY. Yes, hiccups can be a sign of a complication early post operatively, but they're also a sign that you're eating too much in a long termer!
PS. Please to note my child was changing her entire outfit in the back of the car, as we were on the way to the gym, and my face is tripping on novocaine post dental work. LOL.
