I had VSG on July 8. I started full liquid diet Monday. Since then, I have had terrible and constant heartburn. Does anyone have any suggestions? I take Pepcid complete and I have Gas-X. Is there some combo that alleviates it? This is just surprising, because I had zero gas pain or heartburn the first week. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I started developing heartburn at about 4 weeks out. I started taking Nexium and it took care of it.

While my doctor didn't, many surgeons will have you on PPI's (prilosec, nexium) for several weeks/months post op.
