Kar- If you find answers, let me know :) I've been burping for 18 months now :) For me, I think its after I've had something dairy, or too sweet for my pouch.  And sometimes its when I've eaten too much, pushed my pouch too much and should have stopped a few bites ago. I used to burp before surgery, too, but not this much...

I'm 3 weeks too! and i burp SO much now.  I think the pouch is so small that it forces that air right back up.  I was surprised that my burps are so loud and so many now, considering they have such a small pouch to come out of.

Here's a link to a site that explains it very very well:

I am 3 months post op and have been burping a LOT since surgery.  Not that I didn't burp before, but now it is a given; anytime I eat, I burp.  If I DON'T let the burps out, I tend to get sick, so I have learned to burp discreetly in public. Most often I eat my lunch in my office at work!
