I was sleeved 7 weeks ago and during the day I am fine but at night I have a burning sensation in my throat. I realized this may be acid reflux? I never had it before my surgery and had I known this would occur I may have chosen bariatric surgery instead. Does anyone have the same symptoms? Is this forever?

Sounds like acid reflux. I have suffered for years after I was sleeved in 1998. Make sure to talk to your DR about what can done. If you can, prop yourself up at night, don't eat 2 hours before bed, avoid foods that can cause acid such as; tomatoes, coffee, citrus and spicy foods!

Thank you Lynda486 I will do this right away and I’ll let my doctor know. Approximately how many years before yours went away?

it goes away for some, but not for all. I'm surprised they didn't tell you that that was a possible side effect of the sleeve.

Good Morning! I am having a revision to bypass in Sept. I still have reflux and can't wait to be off medication for it. I am hoping it will be gone after surgery. By the way, way back when I had it done no one told me the sleeve would cause acid reflux either! Good luck!!

No, I was told the sleeve was not for those suffering from it however I never really had it therefore I didn’t think it would be a problem. I’m still healing and I hope it won’t last.
@Lynda486
Are you revising because of the acid reflux? Gosh I hope I don’t have to resort to that. Please keep me updated on your progress and let me know if it cures the acid reflux.
Good luck with your surgery!

I got reflux immediately after surgery. Medication controls it now. I have read as you lose the weight you also may lose the reflux, this has not been my experience thus far, but I have cut my dose in half . Good luck

I have heard of it, but I have not tried it and to be honest I don't even know what it is. Guess I need to look it up.

It says it is for ulcers

Oh it is, it is. Have been takng it every 6 hours since October 12th 2018, did it work? Well I have had 10 EGJ since then, the last was June 12 2019, strides have been made, but a month ago my surgeons CNP/APN. Valerie told me since I w8ll be 1 year on September 5th, enoogh time has passed SHE HAS DECLARED Me CURED. Is this correct? Doubtful? Do I believe my case was treated poorly? Probably but since m6 a surgeon not that interested, had last endoscopy with my gastroenterologist in my town, because they were not sure super- interested in scheduling another at OSU. All Dr Upchurch told me was jejunem looks scarred but healed. In the meantlme like a good little girl I chug the Carafate slurry down 6am- Noon-6 pm- Midnight, luckily with my co-pay it is $6,30 month instead of the $200-300 over the counter, Wal-Mart and Big Pharma Happy, Frustr8 equally peeved and angry and sad about my treatment. I call it Indifference and neglect, when I complained in Late May i was told. by a nurse, no less, to seek Mental Health consult at my County Mental Health organization,the suggestion STILL STINGS even these months later. But my next clinic Appointment is this Wednesday the 14th, guess I SHOULD BE THRILLED I actually get an opportunity to face- to- face complain. if I want. A sad facet, I have lost down to 188 pounds, and that may be all They will Center on, not paying attention to what I Say, and now according to their stated policy I am only mandated to SHOW UP once yearly. Was I a Fool,to trust these people and this facility? Probably so but I am on Medicare/Medicaid, the first group don't CARE- the second not much AID- they still chunked the money out, but did I get healed for their benificance? Nope feel insignificant and ignored.Yes I am thinner, Healthier? IDK but Whoopie Bing Bong I AM STILL ALIVE maybe they think they kept me from dying and that is sufficent unto the DAY. To paraphase one of my 60s songs
YOU COULD HAVE DONE BETTER- PERHAOS YOU DIDN'T MEAN TO BE UNKIND- BUT ABUNDANTLY OBVIOUS- I WAS THE LAST THING ON YOUR MIND.
Sad👎😥😪 Isn't It?

take nexium everyday and you will be fine from acid reflex

there have been a lot of warnings lately about taking PPI's long term. They're fine for short-term use, but not day after day, year after year.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
