  1. Hello, As of Feb 18th, I was 4 years out from surgery. Surgery went well, except for about 2 weeks after surgery I had sever GERD. The doctors weren't sure what was causing it other than I went from the Lap Band to Sleeve. It lasted about 2 weeks and then there after never had a issue until just recently. I was taking 1 Prilosec a day and now bumped it to 2x a day. Since that was not really working, I tried Pepcid and that has not worked that I can tell. I do have an appointment next week with my bariatric doctor and Im thinking they are going to order a upper GI. Im just wondering if anyone has experience this being this far out from surgery. I thought with being 4 years out that I wouldn't have this issue. Im scared to death that they won't figure it out and they will try to transition me to full bypass. Thank you,
  2. Hello, As of 01/01/2020 my insurance will no longer cover Prilosec as a prescription because its over the counter. Pricing it out to by it over the counter, I would need to take out of second mortgage. I cant take Protonix . Just wondering what other rx's people are taking after surgery. The Prilosec is working thus far for me.
  3. I was on anti inflammatory prior to surgery, had to stop before surgery. I was cleared about a month ago that I could take celbrex as long as I upped my prilosec. to x2 a day. I have been on birth control pills for 30 years no issues after surgery.
  4. Much better these days, thank you for asking. It was a rough month or so. My anxiety is pretty much gone. I never had experienced anything like that before, you feel helpless. All the chest issues were I believe extreme Gerd. I have that under control with a prilosec a day. Now I just have to figure out how to manage all my aches and pains. I was on anti inflammatory meds prior to surgery and then was taken off. I was cleared to take them again I just have not, was a bit worried but its to the point I cant exercise much and weigh loss has pretty much stopped
  5. Do you take the pill whole or ? I was prescribed that one awhile back but stuck with the other.
  6. Sorry wrong forum..
  7. Hello, Just wondering if anyone has taken or is currently taking an anti inflammatory after surgery? I was on Voltaren for multiple issues and since I have been off it since surgery, I am in so much pain. When I asked my surgeon they did not flat out say no it more like wait awhile and we will see. I was taking it while I had the lap band with no issues. I had a upper GI and a barium swallow for other things and nobody said I had issues due to taking the Voltaren. My weight loss has pretty much stopped/stalled after 7 weeks due to not being able to exercise. Thanks for your thoughts.

  9. Hello, I am 6 weeks post op and the last week or two I have been experiencing left side paid that radiates into the backside. I seemed to have it in the morning after I wake up or after I eat. Anyone else have this issue?

    Severe Gerd?

    I had it originally placed in 2005. It slipped in 2014, had it redone and then it slipped again in 2018. Revised to sleeve on 2/18/2019. Other than the slips no other issues that I knew of.

    Severe Gerd?

    I think we might have found some of my issues. I had a EGD and upper GI and it looks like I have esophageal motility issues. Basically when I eat my esophagus is not moving the food down to the stomach. Therefore its just sits there in the esophagus causing issues. They have me on a soft diet eating more frequently. I do feel better than I did, so hopefully I'm over the hump. They didn't directly say it but wondering if this was related to having the Lap Band on for a long time.
