Stomach Ulcer - Long Term Complication


7 posts in this topic

Hi There

I am four years out from my surgery this July and I am 99% sure that I have developed a stomach ulcer. I will be visiting my doc next week for further tests, but I was wondering if anyone else has developed this problem as a long term complication and if so, what was the outcome?

Thanks! :-)

I have seen a few posts re ulcers that were treated by using ppi. Do you know what may have caused the ulcer?

I didn't get an ulcer long term but at 2 months post rny I developed an ulcer for no known reason. I was on ppi. They tried max carafate for 6 weeks to resolve without success. I ended up having to have a bypass revision basically having rny all over again at 4 months out to remove the ulcer and make a new pouch.

:( tough times but I am doing very well now. I am 2 months post op of my second rny now. I am 100 pounds down.

The weight loss is fantastic! Ulcer is so painful. It's probably pretty scary to have one in a pouch and not know why, huh? Like how do I prevent another one. Impressed that the surgeon could make a second pouch!
Glad you're on the mend!

Yes!! I was lucky that my first pouch was 6 millimeters (I think) leaving room for the revision. I didn't participate in any normal ulcer causing issues like caffeine, smoking, soda, alcohol and so forth.
