my husband is 5 days out from having DS Surgery and is having issues with what he thinks is heartburn or some type of acid reflux. Not sure. He never had this before and is really wanting to see if anybody else had this and what you did to help. I had DS surgery 16 months ago and don't remember having this issue. Thanks for the help.

I unfortunately have been blessed w it since prior to surgery, however my daughter had a few bouts with it after surgery. It truly depends on what she eats. He may want to keep track to see what triggered it. Sometimes it takes a few days for it to subside.

Heartburn and Acid are the same thing... A PPI like generic Omeprazole will help. He should ask his primary Dr or surgeon, they will most likely give a RX.

I unfortunately cannot answer this question but I am curious about DS.

With DS, is there supposed to be a risk of increased heartburn or reflux?

I did go online to research this a little and did see some information that indicated that You could be at a higher risk for Gerd with this surgery.

If I were you, I would give his surgeon a call and get instructions.

I really do wish you both the best of luck and hope this resolves quickly. I had the RNY surgery because I had such severe Gerd that I literally was coughing violently for over a year. Gerd can be very destructive if that is what is happening so please get it treated.

Please take care of each other!

On of the complications of DS is the possible exacerbation of existing reflux or development of reflux. I feel into the later case. I take omerprozole, but switched to nexium. I still have bouts of it but take an omerprozole for the breakthrough instances of reflux.

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
