Reflux 2 days post op



Recommended Posts

This has been a concern of mine as well. My reflux is controlled with panteprazole (pre-surgery) but the reflux is what pushed me to do this in the first place. I have talked to my surgeon about this and he seems confident this won’t be an issue for me. He will correct a hiatal hernia if he sees one during the surgery. I had a PCP tell me once I had a hernia but it has never been scoped and never been flagged on an chest CTs I have had for other reasons. Sounds like I’ll be staying on the panteprazole for awhile I guess. I hate that pain.

Are you having sleeve or bypass?

I had horrible GERD, I was on 2 prescriptions and still taking tums regularly. Even with all that, when it flared up it was unbearable. Basically vomiting acid! So bad my voice would be hoarse for days after.

Anyway, I had bypass and it 100% resolved it. No meds, no tums, no signs of any acid reflux related issues at all!

I had sleeve.. so far not more issues with reflux.. some minor experiences which I suppose is to be expected but still taking propantazole for another 2 weeks.. surgeon said he want concerned at this rage and will re assess is 3 months but to call him if I am concerned.. so glad you have been able to fix your reflux with the bypass!! I’m hoping I don’t get any more experience of it but I guess it’s a major change to my gastric function so to be expected at times.

I was revised to bypass because I developed GERD after sleeve. Fun times. 🤦‍♀️ It’s super common unfortunately.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
