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.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
