  1. Hi, I am a teacher and ideally I want to get surgery a week before our april vacation and then I will have almost 2 weeks to recover before going back to work. I want it so bad I just cant wait but at the same time am a nervous wreck especially if I am getting the bypass. I could also wait until the summer when I am out of school but I really dont want to wait that long. Advice? Ideas?

    I am 8 years out and still burp a lot more than I did before. It does get better. I find when I eat to much I burp more. Or when I’m on the onset of dumping I do. Thankfully I dont dump much anymore now that I know what to avoid.

    I hope you dont mind i have a few questions as I am trying to decide on GB or GS...Did you regret getting bypass in the beginning? ALso, how long did it take you to recover? is one week too soon to go back to work? What about two? How bad is dumping and does it happen a lot?

    I completely agree, Im having the bypass done after having the sleeve due to vomiting and constant reflux and its been going on since the sleeve was done 3 years ago. I just assumed the vomiting was from me overeating. I can't wait to get this over. My surgery was scheduled in October but due to some family emergency I had move it to Nov. and now I'm on my second 5 day fast in 2 months and I can't wait til they put me to sleep just so I can't feel hungry anymore.

    Hello Lisa,
    I had a gastric sleeve 2 1/2 years ago and also had severe Acid reflux / Gerd. I was sick six out of every seven days on average.
    I tried behavior modifications and several medications but they only worked for a short time.
    I became more and more concerned about Esophageal cancer so I finally had RnY revision surgery January 30, 2019 (about eight weeks ago).
    Since then I have had essentially no Acid reflux. I am still adjusting to the new diet regimen and yes it seems a little more restricting than my experience with the sleeve but I am progressing nicely and believe I made the correct decision.
    So I say do it. You won’t regret it and you’ll probably loose more weight.

    I have always had GERD and am getting the surgery in the spring. I would rather get the sleeve but now I am rethinging it based on this thread. Any advice??
