Indegestion 3 wks postop bypass



Recommended Posts

Has anybody suffered with Indegestion/reflux type symptoms 3 weeks after bypass? My doctor has me on Pepcid but it's not helping. Wondering if I need to go back on Prilosec. So frustrating, I thought the surgery would help acid reflux not make it worse.

For the first year after RNY surgery, my surgeon prescribed Omeprazole [Prilosec]. He did this not because prior to surgery I had severe acid reflux, but rather because it allowed my stomach to heal. I am now 34 months post-op RNY. I discontinued the use of Omeprazole after the one year mark. I no longer have problems with severe acid reflux.

It may be that you are experiencing dumping syndrome since many of the symptoms overlap.

I like Omeprazole! I haven't had acid reflux since surgery. Maybe the Pepcid isn't strong enough! Are you eating foods that are too rich or spicy too soon? May be worth a call to your Doc if it continues. :)
