The only option: Revision sleeve to bypass!



Recommended Posts

I had my sleeve surgery in 2013 and have had GERD 6 months after the surgery. I have been on omeprazole for 7 yrs. I went from 40 mg once a day to twice a day. My surgeon now feels that a revision is necessary to resolve this issue. I just meet with him on 10/14 and I am scheduled for surgery for 11/19 upon approval from my insurance company. I will have the revision and repair the hiatal hernia I have too. I did not think it would be this soon. I'm a little worried but looking forward to not having to worry about taking these pills and the effects if I dont. Alot of my family does not know I had the sleeve so now Im concerned about Thanksgiving when I will still be on pureed foods. Not sure what I will do but just praying all works out well.

Maybe just tell them your tummy is still really sensitive from the hernia surgery? They don't need to know you did stuff in addition to the hernia repair.

They usually have hernia patients on the same phases of diets as WLS patients to let the hernia site repair. Besides, mashed potatoes and gravy are one of the best thanksgiving sides anyway!

That's rough.

Gosh, it's just too bad that you got exposed to the novel corona virus around, oh lets call it November 20 when you were getting your hernia repaired. The hospital says you must now isolate for 14 days. You really want to have Thanksgiving with the family, but you just simply will not risk their health. I'll have to settle for seeing everyone at Christmas. Darn.

Good luck,

Tek
