Anyone Else Have Nighttime Reflux Coughing Or Vomitting?



Recommended Posts

I’m off to see the doc in July about this ... I hope solution is not another surgery - I can’t afford it ! Maybe an un fill will solve this . My original surgeon said the band may naturally tighten by itself over the years so maybe that’s what’s happened . Time will tell
Hoping for the best for you. Let's know what next for you!

I just went to the doc for this today! Got a complete unfill, waiting to see if symptoms resolve. I'm hoping so because Ido not want to do another surgery..... [emoji44]

Yes --- and I revised from Realize Band (6/2009) to a VSG 8 weeks ago.

I was surprised because 10 years ago I was self-pay for the band --- and I have been saving money in my HSA because I feared that it would have to come out one day and I would be self pay again.

My surgeon submitted the insurance request based on my reflux and the damage that had been done to my esophagus -- not necessarily for remediation of obesity --- and I got approved for the removal/revision within a week.

So I finally saw my surgeon yesterday . He said what I explained were classic symptoms of a over tight band - it can self tighten over the 4 years since my last fill . My band had 8 mil in he’s reduced to 4 and we will build up over time to maybe 6.5 or 7 as 8 is too much for me ! Results ? Fantastic , no reflux no coughing no vomiting more sleep - a success at £200 gbp

I had this problem for a year and it was pretty severe . Most foods bounced back with slime . Even Water could only be taken by sipping . Eventually had an infill , 4 m taken out of an 8 m fill = instant relief , no acid no vomit no night cough etc etc full nights sleep BUT , 10 pounds gain - eating everything in sight 😡

For a couple of years now there have been reports of the danger of heartburn drugs/PPI blockers like zantac that are commonly used to help with the side effects of gastric surgery.

Today Canada officially recalled these drugs due to their link to cancer.

Personally, I am completely dependent on these drugs due to the acid reflux side effect of my gastric sleeve. If you use these prescriptions daily, I strongly urge you to contact your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
