  1. I thought it was just me..LOL I had a VGS back in Dec. 2015 and never had this problem. Am now about 6 weeks out from my SADI loop surgery and am having a big problem with this as well. Working with a lot of people around me and with frequent meetings it is most definitely an issue. I am trying the probiotics approach on a regular basis to see if it helps.

    Visiting from the RNY Side

    I take 40mg of Omeprazole and have been taking it long before my surgery for GERD. I will eventually stop it as per my doctor. However, if it comes back then I will go back to it. I also take a probiotic to help with that stuff. I read on a bariatric site that probiotics may enhance weight loss for bariatric patients. The bottom line is we have to try to eat the right foods that minimize reflux and it should be fine.
  3. It is possible for bile reflux. So far I haven't experienced anything out of the normal range of what was to be expected. Overall, my issue was whether I should have the traditional DS to achieve the maximum weight loss in comparison to the SADI Loop DS. I just did not have enough success with the SG alone. It is a newer surgery just like the gastric bypass was 20 yrs or more ago. This article I came across may help those considering this surgery. http://bariatrictimes.com/exploring-the-role-of-single-anastomosis-bariatric-surgery/
