  2. Im 5 years in Oct and when i had the endoscopy before surgery i had a slight hiatal hernia.ive always suffered from heartburn on and off but everything was ok.until 3 months ago when i had my 3rd endoscopy and was told i had an ulcer(my biggest fear with this surgery) and my hernia is alot worse.so i was put on carafate for 3 months and had my hiatal hernia repaired 5 days.another endoscopy was done right before surgery and showed ulcer healed but i had a massive amount of scar tissue from acids in my stomach.also my stomach is still very irritated and i just got back from check up today and i have to be on pureed foods for 4 more weeks and still on protonix for 2 months more(ive been on protonix since my sleeve,5yrs!)also have to get another endoscopy in 6 weeks!omgg,this acid needs to stop already!anyone else been down this road??? 10/6/2014-214lbs 7/15/2019-149lbs Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

    My Doctor faked my surgery!

    believe me I also had a very easy recovery too!i had one incision thru my belly button.surgery on Monday up and out driving by Friday.hitting crs all weekend too!i had no problems getting liquids,soft foods or water down.it was portions that I couldn't do.couple teaspoons here and there.you will suceed.consider us very thankful that we had no complications!!

  14. my sister who I barely talk to does this to me all the time in front of people I don't know.and believe me its not like shes complimenting me and telling me I look great either.its always yelling acoss the way from me"how much weight did you lose"?or what are you going to do about loose skin?i really cannot stand her and shes the only one who says it.
