Anyone have GERD and get the sleeve and it improved? I am really hesitant to get the bypass because it is more invasive but want my gerd to get better not worse.

That's going to be super individualized and no one can predict what it will be like until after.(But I personally don't dump often because I'm careful- sidenote I was revised from VSG to RNY for GERD)

Ask about the statistics on GERD remission/recurrence after VSG from your Surgeon or research it yourself

But really It will all come down to what the surgeon (and you) determine is the best course of action

Good Luck 💙

The dumping-I did early on from flavored medicine that had sugar in the flavoring. I was super strict for 6 months but now I am at my goal weight and I have had a cookie, a bite of ice cream, a piece of bread (one of those not all of them maybe once a week, not everyday) and have not dumped. I have not had a large serving and if I get too many carbs or eat to fast I feel blah but don’t get sick. It’s different for everyone.

I'm trying to determine what procedure is best for me. I'm having my surgery on 1/31/20, I only want to do this once. I have dealt with heartburn issues here and there, but not frequently or long term. I'm praying for guidance and clarity to make the proper decision.

Go for the gastric, wish I would have gotten that one instead of the sleeve..I never had problems with heartburn until I got the sleeve done..but I'm still happy

I had bypass because I had GERD and my surgeon wouldn't do tge sleeve. No GERD now. 8 months post bypass and have never dumped, but I am very strict with my sugar intake. I'm not sick all the time either. If you even have mild GERD the sleeve has the potential to make it worse. Good luck whichever you choose.

Seriously 89% in on the rny procedure, sent my surgeon an email this evening to explain my point of view and to express my concerns.

I have moderate acid reflux and was initially scheduled for a sleeve. I talked to my surgeon and he decided that a MBP was better for me. I'm concerned about bile reflux with the MBP, but a RNY doesn't have a reflux issue of any kind. If I were you, I would not get a sleeve and go for the RNY....just my opinion though.
