3 months post op and everything I swallow makes me feel like I have heart burn.



Recommended Posts

Everything I swallow, Water, pills, food… I hardly eat because it’s so uncomfortable. I have never had a problem with heart burn ever in my life. I take Prilosec but the pain still happens.

Reflux happens to many people after the sleeve. I get it if I eat too quickly or if I wait too long between times eating. Call your surgeon. There are stronger medications you can take. Some people do have a revision to gastric bypass to resolve it but usually only after medication can’t resolve it.

RNY Gastric Bypass is usually the best surgical technique for people who have heartburn or GERD. It usually eliminates those issues and type II diabetes.

Are you drinking or eating too quickly? Try slowing down to sips or tiny bites well chewed.

No I chew every bite really well, and at this point, one bite is all I eat because it’s so uncomfortable. I’m taking Prilosec because it feels like heart burn but the Prilosec does nothing. And after some time, that one bite of food settles and the sensation stops until my next bit of food or Water.

      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 🥲

      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.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
