    Default "Full"signals

    I noticed recently a couple of discussions and questions about the "being full" signals of the sleeve.
    Hick ups, runny nose, burping, watery eyes, sneezing, these can all be a signal, that your sleeve is full.

    These strange things are caused by the vagus nerve, on top of your stomach.
    When the sleeve fills up with food, it will reach the point, where the vagus nerve sits.
    By touching that nerve, the symptoms will start.
    So, when you notice one of these "signs" put down your utensils and stop eating.
    Just leave the rest on your plate.

    A couple of weeks after your surgery you can start to look for your sign.
    Really pay close attention to what happens, when you are eating.
    Once you recognize your own personal "full signal", you know when you are done eating.
    I have looked up some interesting links for you.
    I hope this clarifies and helps.

    Mine can be burping or sometimes it's just feeling the fullness in my stomach.

    Im in the hospital post op. My full sign is burping but I notice my stomach feels hungry but I’m not hungry at all. Could that be a full sign as well? I’m also trying to figure out what it feels like when I’ve taken to big of a swallow.

    Edie and I have the same symptoms - and if I ignore it, "toad froth" inevitably follows, with or without up-chucking. But you do learn!

    I get burps and "gurgles" which might be exactly what you are describing. Too big a bite for me feels like a rock when it hits my stomach. Most important thing on that is to chew a lot.

    Very loud forceful hiccups for me. I'm 6 weeks post op this week. I'm trying to stop before I get to that point now. It's a little embarrassing in a quiet office during the day lol.
