    Well, at least we know now what it takes to make Toni sing… a little Outkast. :) Hey ya!

    Toni – you are not alone! We recently discussed early post-op “belching” in the VSG forum (Jabba2Halle is experiencing it now), and Jen & I both commented that we had done that, too. It’s lessened now at 2.5 years out, but I still have those air bubbles – and not always at night! I just figure my sleeve is trying to make more room for food and getting rid of any excess room in there.

  3. haven’t noticed the “bubbles” per se… but I do tend to “gurgle” quite often.

  4. Jen (gum2bear) says:

    I think that the noise that my pouch makes when I lay down at night qualifies as a barometer bird noise!!!


  5. I get those gurgles/bubbles when I lay down at night as well. Hadn’t given them much thought since they don’t really keep me up or bother me in any other way. Just another unique “Freak” quality I guess.

  6. Thanks guys… I no longer feel alone in my freaky barometer birdness.
