Low bmi 31 banded converter to mgb



Recommended Posts

Hi,

I lost 100 lbs on band but had severe stuck problems and got my band removwd and converted to mgb. Now 14 daya post op, stiches have healed but every now and then i have severe bile reflux andnif i have some thing spicy i have this terrible feeling of throwing up. My lead surgeon is from europe who came just to perform the mgb in my country where a follow up surgeon takes care of follow ups.. But he is not too experieced.. I have some acid and somw bile reflux, out of which bile relfux i never had with the band... I am super scared to eat anything, doctors say it will settle... Is there a medication i can take to fix my bile reflux.. They gave me metaclopramide which really does nothing but make me throw up or does little to control the bile reflux... Need help from. Fellow patients.. Does it get better?

My surgeon wrote to me saying

"It’s too early. See how you go I am coming in first wk of February. If needed we can do procedures to divert bile"

Does that mean another surgery?

I have lost 7 kgs and am now 28 bmi, to eyes i look like super fit but internally i am super weak.

Thanks

Would stay away from chilli stuff for a while coz it could irritate and hurt the healing

It’s entirely too early post op to eat spicy stuff. Probably the reason for bile and acid reflux. Most important things to concentrate on are fluids (mostly water) and Protein. Your pouch is still healing and will be healing for at least 6 to 8 weeks.
