Hiccups After Surgery for the last 8 months

Over the last year and a half, i have had 7 ERCP's (with dilatation and stenting of the CBD) and a Roux-en-y Hepaticojejunostomy 10 months ago to repair a damanged Common Bile Duct from a Lap Chole.

For the last 8 months I have been having random hiccups (about 10-20/hr). They don't occur at night - atleast they don't wake me or my husband. There doesnt seem to be a pattern to them. I am wondering if they could be related to any of the procedures I had done. The hiccups are loud, I can't quietly hiccup, and cause some discomfort.

Any opinion would be greatly appreciated!!
