Hi there. I have surgery scheduled for Feb 7. I want the Gastric Sleeve, but due to my high acid readings and lazy esophageal sphincter muscle, the doctor is suggesting the Gastric Bypass. Any thoughts or experiences?

Yup. Same thing happened to me and I am so thankful! I had severe gerd and my bypass cured it among many other health issues.

I Would not chance the sleeve if u have acid reflux or gerd. Many, many oeopke have to get a revision after the sleeve due to horrible reflux. Hes what my surgeon saud to me bc I also have had gerd for years. He said," about 1/3 of sleeve patients I see end up having reflux, however what Im seeing more and more

Is a much later down the line many get horrendous reflux daily and I end up doing a revision, bypass.

We got talking a out this bc I have had reflux for many year. I'm not gonna go through this surgery twice, so Its bypass for me.

Yep! I had to have Bypass cuz of my Gerd and Barrett's Esophagus! I haven't had any issues since! Before surgery, even Water gave me acid reflux! I am very pleased with my surgery and haven't had any issues other than needing my Gallbladder out a couple months after surgery! Now I'm great! :)

Same here I was initially interested in the sleeve but have gerd and they found a small hiatal hernia in my swallow study they said they would fix but I'm concerned about acid reflux still and leaning towards bypass
