I had the sleeve and took omeprazole for about a year post op. I went off and had a great 3 years. This last year the pain of reflux and spasm has gone from mild to moderate to I am crying at 1 am unable to sleep. I kept my weight off (125 pounds) for 4 years but this last year I have regained about 15 or so. Is my weight gain the cause? I admit I was religiously off diet soda the first year or so but have slowly started drinking them again. Is it the soda? This last week has been unbearable. Should I try gaviscon or nexium? I have maintained my small meal small portion control. I blame weight gain to Covid, isolation, no gym and a sudden love of sandwiches (bread). Tho I eat a small half portion - is the bread doing more than weight gain?
