Hi! I'm having a Mini Gastric Bypass done on the 26th and I am worried about bile reflux. I've read more horror stories than happy ones on multiple forums, so I'm concerned I will end up another victim of bile reflux. Has anyone had a MGB and NOT have reflux? I really want a RNY but the surgeon won't do it. Any advice?

He said it's a surgery I dont need when a mini gastric bypass would be perfect for me. I'm scared of getting bile reflux from the MGB. That's why I want the RNY. If I get reflux then I have to pay for a RNY anyways. I'm not happy about it, but I need surgery so I will have to deal with it and hope I'm not one of the people that get reflux.

If it was me, I would have another conversation well before surgery and discuss this topic with the surgeon yet again.

Don't risk being dissatisfied with the relationship and what you are getting. Its a long partnership

Good Luck 💙

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
