Hi everyone , I'm getting the sleeve on October 18th . And I was told the sleeve doesn't help people with acid reflux , for some reason the doctor decided for sleeve . Does anyone know if the acid reflux could get better or worse with the sleeve ? Thank you

@@vivi16 It depends on the cause of the acid reflux. Do you have a hiatal hernia that will be repaired at the same time? If so - that's probably what's causing the reflux. I have mild reflux (based on my GI Study) and having the Sleeve. My Dr felt there would be no issues. I'm also on the 18th!! good luck!

@@SAL421 It's common to get cold feet. This is a huge decision. I think if you remember the reasons why you started on this journey you'll realize it is the right decision - but only you can decide. I'm scheduled in 20 days and know it's the only decision for me! I have to do it for my health.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
