feeling of food in esophagus and heartburn?



Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I am a few weeks from my 3 year anniversary of having my sleeve surgery. Sometimes I have the feeling that there is food stuck in my esophagus or I get heartburn. I never had heartburn prior to surgery. Any thoughts about why this might be happening and what I can do to get rid of these problems?

TIA!

Sounds maybe like a possible stricture causing GERD and you might need that looked at. Stricture causes delayed emptying of food into the stomach and can cause reflux of it backward, or reflux of stomach acid.

I've had esophageal stricture for about 15 years, I get bi-annual EGD with dilation of the stricture. Surgery helped some but mine is still there...

Thank you for sharing! I will contact my surgeon to see if they can do anything. All the best!
