10 days post op! Plus a hiatal hernia repair to boot. I didn't have heart burn the first week but the past 3 days I've had heartburn on and off! Seems like it's worse when I'm laying down.... Does the heartburn go away? Did u even have heartburn? Is it true that if u have heartburn a lot after vgs u may have to get bypass?

Prescribed by your Dr? Or over the counter?

Varies from a lot of factors. Surgery. food. drinks. Etc.

I had excruciating heartburn from before vsg. I haven’t had one bout of it since surgery. I also changed my diet pretty significantly (mostly plant based).

Some have it worse though, unfortunately. From the research I’ve done on it, types of food and drinks, and how much consumed are all culprits. Not sure the reasoning behind WLS and still possibly having it.

Hope you find relief though.

Mine started around three weeks postop. I'm taking over-the-counter Nexium and it seems to be helping a ton!
