Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

you need to see a doctor at the ER or urgent care center

they can give you a prescription for medication called chlorpromazine 25-50mg 3-4 times a day which can help decrease hiccups.

your doctor should also check a chest xray and ultrasound of your abdomen to check for fluid in the gall bladder surgery location which could be irritating your diaphragm which can cause hiccups.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
