I had my sleeve on Halloween was wondering if anyone else had there’s around then. I’ve struggled with acid reflux my whole life and it’s been the worst since the surgery they had to put me on oral lidocaine with my gerd medicine. Hopefully it starts to tone down some I ended up having to go back to the hospital on Saturday as it felt like a elephant was on me and I got dizzy. Questions I wanted to ask is anyone else having a issues swallowing things like Jello it hurts my throat to eat stuff like my Protein Shakes Gatorade zero Water I’m ok with broth was also bothering it?

That is from the tube they stuck down your throat during surgery, It will heal shortly - Get the good reflux medications and it will fix it -

I had mine on the 28th. I’m not having any reflux issues. But I’ve heard it’s not uncommon. Just give it a little time.

I’m on omeprazale already been for years and the lidocaine oral gel. I’ve researched they do sleeves a lot in people with acid reflux wasn’t uncommon. Mine has just been worse sense it was done. I go back to the doctor Thursday to see if we need to change stuff up. This morning it was bad again.

Why did they do sleeve if you had reflux already???

I was thinking this as well. The docs all seem to favor RNY if you already have GERD/Reflux. I did the sleeve because I didn't have refulx.

I had my sleeve surgery on Halloween as well! Thankfully I haven’t had an GERD issues but they did start me on omeprazale and I will be on this for 2 months regardless if I have any issues or not. While in the hospital I would have hoped that they would have figured things out for you or changed meds, I’m sorry that you are going through this.

I think the issue was day two when I went home it seemed ok then got worse once I got home. It wasn’t too bad today so I’m hoping it’s getting better.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
