Had my revision to RNY yesterday. Surgery went well and they also fixed a pretty large Hiatal hernia. Water is going down fine. I keep sleeping with my mouth open & it is royally drying my mouth out. They gave me an anti nausea patch behind my ear that is working like a charm . The pain is also different from when I had the sleeve. More gas in my chest this time & it feels like I did 8million sit-ups, but I know each day will get better. To all those getting revision- make sure you walk laps around the floor and definitely take the main meds. They work! And make sure you ask for sugar free popsicles !
I assume the Dr is going to make me stay an extra night but not sure.
Happy I am finally through it and on the road to no more GERD.
Good luck to all who will also be going through this!🍀

I had mine on July 16th and so far no reflux thankfully. But I will see once they take me off zegrid and Carafate. I no longer have to take zantac or GI cocktail.

Congrats Ginger and thanks for sharing. I had my revision on 7/25. I've had no issues with GERD. My doctor has me on Prilosec, 40mg for the next couple of months. Stomach is still sore and swollen, but i get my staples out on Monday so that's a plus (i think [emoji3]). So far I've lost 20lbs, YEAH!! WELCOME TO THE RNY SIDE!!

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

        Had surgery on Thursday the 17th. Everything went well and came home the next day. I have been on two protein shakes and liquids/broth each day since but will finally graduate to pureed foods on Thursday. Been walking and doing my breathing exercises as recommended. No pain that Tylenol can't ease but only needed it twice since I've been home. Don't bother taking extra stuff to the hospital as you will not use it. No time to read or talking as you will be sipping all day long and walking. And they will be giving you pain meds so you will be sleepy. Definitely take lip balm and wear loose clothes to the hospital and wear the same ones home. No need to overpack. Good luck everyone who will be going next. YOU GOT THIS!!!!

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.
