Hi, My father had a CABG last week and after 2/3 days he has started showing partial hiccups that tend to cause abnormal movements of the stomach [noticeable] and thus affects his sleep. Also his voice breaks significantly during this. The hiccups are partial in the sense that the cause movements of the abdomen region. Is this common? Can u please suggest what I must do ? Is this something related to diaphragm inflation?
hi noted all his details dont worry hiccups can be because of slight irritation of the diaphragm (not inflation) a cabg surgery reqires opening of the chest wall our body is a closed system ,so if any new changes to the body enviorement is there ,body will take some time to cope with it and get adapted to it
complete bed rest after cabg and limited mobilisation can also be a cause as gastritis hiocuups abnormal abdominal monents
once as he will start to ambulate these problems will settle down
