Of course. I've never met a weight-loss surgery patient who didn't.

I nvr knew what heartburn felt like before surgery. I acquired it after surgery and took protonix the first 6 months. The more I healed the less harsh it was. I drink a bottle of Water 25-30 minutes before I eat. And another 30 mins to an hr after. this DEFINITELY works for me to steer clear of heartburn! Try it out!!!

Omgosh, the heartburn is the worst part thus far. Sleeved 12-19-16 and it was just a few hours after surgery that it started. I am in the process of trying different meds to find what works for me. It is so bad it wakes me up in the middle of the night. Ugh

Well I'm 3 yrs and 6 months out and I take 40 mg Omeprazole twice a day. I just had a MRI done and I am going to be taking this for awhile. No matter what I do I have it. I wake up with it even if I just drink Water. Have had it every since the surgery. The pills help but it can be a pain and does keep me up at night without the pills.

Unfortunately, acid reflux is a common complication of VSG.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

        I have threw up clear mucus every time I ate something that didn’t sit well with my stomach. I’ve been trying to get too ahead of myself though I had surgery September 22 I noticed that when I eat smaller slower bites I don’t throw up as much
