Severe LPR 3 years after sleeve



Recommended Posts

I recently have been diagnosed with LPR. I wake up all night choking on acid. During the day I’m coughing and regurgitate. I’ve done all the recommendations like head propped up, no food 3 hours before bed, 80mg of omeprazole a day. It helps very little. Gastric surgeon says hiatal repair will fix and GI surgeon disagrees. Says I should do the Linx (not fda approved). Anyone else have this issue? I have gained some weight back, is that why this reflux is happening? Would it help to lose weight? Id love to be able to sleep through the night.

it might help - but then again, it may be the sleeve - acid reflux can be an issue for some people with VSG. I'd try losing weight first, though, and see if that helps. I suppose it could be a hiatal hernia, too. Sorry you're going through this - I had GERD before my surgery - it's awful!!

If it were me, I'd look into a hiatal repair and a revision to bypass surgery. But I'm not a doctor! Good luck and feel better.

There is another procedure called gastric j that apparently is meant to solve the problem as well without needing to go to bypass.

I have not had this procedure, but the practice I go to is doing a lot of them and the patients seem very happy and many showing added weight loss after as well. May be worth checking into it.

I was sleeved in 2016, on 10/22 had a revision to DS with hiatial hernia repair. 9 hours of surgery, wasnt sure it was the right thing but immediately no more GERD, 20 pounds down in 2 weeks, I can sleep. Wont front the revision surgery kicked my ass, but two weeks later i'm thinking it was the right thing to do
