3 weeks post op with reflux isn’t abnormal. Are you on a PPI? The EGD is easy but seems a bit premature. I’ve had a bunch since surgery august 2017 but I have severe complications

The doctors are sure why I have it so severe so soon. They just switched my acid reflux meds, I believe to a PPI. Seams a bit better today.

I developed a rare case of severe reflux- I had reflux prior to sleeve. When I had my sleeve my symptoms improved for a couple of months about 6 months ago they got so bad I was producing acid while I was sleeping. Because of the medication I was on I wasn't able to wake up. Once we got the EDG results, I had severe inflammation due to the reflux to my esophagus, and because of that it cause a restriction where my esophagus and stomach meet, it made it hard for me to eat. Within a week I was approved for bypass, I will be 2 weeks post op tomorrow. And have been reflux free.

It’s great to hear you’re reflux free. Mine is incredibly awful. Original sleeve surgeon basically keeps telling me to suffer so I’ve gone to another surgeon and will get bypass April 4. I just pray I’m in his 90% of patients whose GERD is cured.

How long did you have the sleeve for before getting bypass?

I had my sleeve in oct 2017. I started with issues about June maybe. July/aug it got worse. Had I known I could have went this route I wouldn't have waited so long.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

        Congratulations. I remember that day for me: May 13, 2014. I thought it'd never happen (especially after a 7-day stall at 200.2!!), but it was a "Hallelujah" day! Now...stay on program so you can stay in Onederland. After five years, especially...when ghrelin returns. So stay on track.

        CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! Onederland is a GREAT place to be.
