Tried the recommendation of bending over while drinking the cold water. Seemed to help for a short time but they are back. Next ??

  • Hiccups can happen for a million reasons. General anesthesia can irritate certain nerves which can lead to the hiccups... Try having a friend cover your ears and drink a full glass of water while they do. http://www.get-rid-of-hiccups.com
