    Why do so many sleevers get GERD?

    I didn’t have GERD/ acid reflux until after the sleeve. I ended up with 4 ulcers in my esophagus. I just had revision surgery to the gastric bypass on Monday.

    Mine is sore on the lower right! Getting up and down is what really hurts. Anyone else like this? Oh, and coughing is a killer.
  5. I just had surgery yesterday and ouch, I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck! How is everyone feeling? I’ve been up and walking around since yesterday after my surgery and I think it’s catching up to me a bit. Is the first week the hardest?
  6. I had the gastric bypass and omg it hurts...especially my low left side. My surgery was on Monday 6/24, and was hoping to feel better.

    Surgery tomorrow 6/24?!?

    Thank you! It actually went very well. I haven’t had to take the pain meds at this point and have been able to walk around and sit up. It’s just very sore in my left side, but my doctor told that I would be.

    I have the same due to my sleeve 3 years ago. I go on Monday for my revision for the gastric bypass.
  15. Hi guys, I started my pre-op diet last week. I can have 1 healthy meal a day and shakes the rest. My calorie intake can be no more than 1200. I had lost 5lbs when I weighed in on Friday, but when I weighed this morning I gained 3 lbs. back?!? I don’t get what’s going on since I’m following the diet and not having more than 1200 calories. Anyone experiencing this?

    Pre-OP Diet

    I have to do my pre-op diet for 2 weeks. The first night I had a massive headache That has finally gone away. It is interesting that each doctor prescribes a different pre-op diet for everybody.
  17. I’ve my weight back as well. I’m nervous about this surgery
  18. Yes, I had the sleeve done in May of 2016. After that surgery I had reflux/GERD as well as 4 ulcers in my esophagus. If I don’t my meds for the reflux/GERD then I’m miserable. I just started my pre op diet yesterday and it’s challenging.
  19. I’m with you! I’m having mine done on the 24th.

    hernia development

    I’m having the bypass done due to reflux/GERD and hiatal hernia. After I got my sleeve I started getting severe heart burn and ended up with 4 ulcers in my esophagus. So I decided on the surgery.

    Sleeve to Gastric Bypass???

    Thank you!
  24. Hi all, I’m having a revision surgery done at the end of this month. I had the sleeve back in May 2016 and from that I have severe GERD/acid reflux as well as weight gain. Has anyone else had this revision done? Any thoughts...?
