    Ditto on getting help sooner rather than later. This journey is so complex and can be difficult to navigate as is, getting help would definitely be a benefit . I am sure Theyโ€™ve seen it all before and can help. Get help before it is further along and much harder ๐Ÿ’•

    Oh man, you need to seek professional help. Psychologist? Therapist? Support group? Something. That is a serious disorder, keeping quiet about it is not the answer. Which would be worse, to be slightly overweight again or to be dead?

    Keeping food hot?

    Back in the day, we used to have baby feeding bowls you put hot water into the bottom of. Shame they don't seem to make them anymore, I think they would be perfect.๐Ÿ

    Smooth move tea worksโ€” REAALLLLY WELL haha so be close to home for a few hours!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Also be careful with the fruit- a lot of sugar so donโ€™t eat it after surgery until cleared. Good luck - itโ€™ll be here before you know it!

    I had terrible acid reflux after my gastric sleeve on December 12th. Every time I'd swallow, I'd have to burp and then a radiating pain would occur across my back. My doc said it was very bad reflux and prescribed me Calafate 4x a day, in addition to the esomeperazol that I was already taking. The pain went away after 5 days...thank God! Talk to your doc about taking something for it because there is relief out there.

    I'm still in liquid phase, just starting soft foods phase 18 days post-op. I'm drinking GNC Lean Shakes (chocolate), eating cottage cheese, and have eaten a couple of scrambled eggs. Sam's Club offers a fruit-punch flavored clear protein drink by Premiere Protein. Thinned Oatmeal is okay in liquid phase and has some protein

    I had my surgery in April 2017, and have had to take omeprazole ever since. I can stop taking it for like a week, but then the acid in stomach comes up into my throat. It's awful. My dr says its normal but sometimes people choose to go back and get the full bypass done to get rid of the acid.

    Also see if elevating your head when you sleep helps. Sometimes it does. An extra pillow or a wedge of some sort, maybe?
