Heartburn 8 months post op bypass surgery



Recommended Posts

Hi all I had my bypass in February and all the sudden i have been dealing with horrible burning in my throat and chest. I've been taking Omeprazole 20mg twice a day and even tried adding in a pepcid complete but I'm still suffering. I also sleep elevated. I'm wondering if anyone has dealt with this. I need to have a endoscopy done.

that's odd - normally bypass improves it (if you had it before) if not totally cures it. It's not that it couldn't happen but....certainly not a common thing. I wonder if it's something like a hernia (??). It's good they're doing the endoscopy - then you'll know for sure. Sorry you're going through this!

Reach out to your surgeon. Mine told me that there's always a chance bariatric surgery could induce a severe reflux that my pcp would not be able to help, and he was adamant I call him even if it's several years down the road when it starts. I already had gerd and reflux but he was sure surgery would cure those; he really drove home that I had to call asap if i developed any again.

That is odd! I am having revision to bypass to alleviate my severe GERD so this doesn't make me feel entirely too good! I hope you find answers with you endo/contact with your surgeon, good luck!

it actually usually does alleviate it. I think the OP's case is a bit unusual...

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
