Hiatus hernia surgery 5 years after sleeve surgery

Recommended Posts

Hey all! So just to give you a bit of background, I was sleeved in 2016 and about just under a year ago I started getting horrible heartburn that at one point made me vomit, saw my surgeon and a small hiatus hernia was found. 3 weeks ago on July 12th, I had the surgery to repair this hernia and I’m starting to regret this decision. Recovery has been rough, I have diarrhoea every day which comes on urgently and food is actually coming out the way it went in so it’s not digesting properly. I feel nauseous but can’t throw up or even belch, and about a week ago my heart burn has returned. I’m trying to google to find out if this is a normal part of recovery for hiatus hernia surgery but am not finding much info. Has anyone experienced anything like this if they have had hiatus hernia surgery after being sleeved? I’m getting worried. And yes I’ve contacted my dr multiple times, the last time he said for me to progress to solid foods to see if it helps with the diarrhoea and to just give it time, but it’s not just the diarrhoea it’s how sick it’s making me feel. I’ve given up dairy, I’m not sure what else to do?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
