Horrific GERD related chest pain



Recommended Posts

I have already posted about my issue with hiccups that started on Fri just prior to 3 weeks out and what they told me to do. Well, yesterday was my first whole day back on liquids and I restarted the carafate on Mon. Well, not only do I still have the hiccup issue, yesterday I had the most horrific chest pain. The only reason I didn't totally freak out is I knew the pain was GERD related but it was much worse than anything I ever had pre-surgery. Feels like I can't swallow at times as well.

I called this morning and got an appt for this afternoon but I am wondering has anyone else experienced something like this?

It's highly unusual to have GERD with RNY. Not impossible, but it usually signals a different problem.

But it is possible to have gastritis with RNY. That's likely what you have and that's gonna take a while to resolve. You need to talk to your doc. You're about the time to have a stricture show up.

((hugs)) and hang in there.

So essentially when they fixed my hernia during surgery did my GERD I previously had just kind of go away and now it's probably gastritis? Honest question- I was thinking my GERD would be gone after surgery..but I'm back to same symptoms and worse pain. I hate having strictures dilated but, if that's what I need for this pain to go away..schedule me now!! lol

Could well be oesophageal spasm which is horrendous and can make you feel like there is pressure at the back of your throat and can burn or just be 9/10 pain if the spasm is strong enough. Something is going on seeing as you have the ongoing hiccups. Hope you get to the bottom of it :100_pray:

Spasms is what he told me. Prescribed me dicyclomine, a gut antispasmodic and added another day to my liquids only before slowly going back to solids.

Had the hiccups as soon as I got up but thankfully no chest pain. Hopefully this stuff along with carafate and pepcid will work. But he said if I'm not doing better by Monday to call back to get seen again.

How are you doing. I am 9 months post OP and have been having violent hiccups and burps all day. Had silent reflux symptoms last night and most of the day too.

Not happy, I thought this was fixed.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
