Heartburn & vomiting?



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I had terible heartburn for about a year before my surgey and took Nexium everyday. I have a hietel hernia, but it was too small to operate on so it was left alone when the surgey was done. I stayed on Nexium for a few months after and did okay - then the Dr prescribed Prevacid Solutabs. I have been taking those and doing okay since April -which was also my last fill date. But lately, like in the last 2 weeks I feel vomit coming up in my throat when I sleep and begin to choke. The heartburn is barely tolerable throughout the day. I called the Dr, they mailed a Nexium script that I will start back on tomorrow. But does anyone have these symtoms? I was fine since April and then all of a sudden it seems to be acting up.

Are you close in proximity to your Dr.? I would ask the Dr. to see me asap. I hope your feeling better soon.

Not good. Do try to sleep elevated, if you can. Either prop yourself up on pillows or try sleeping in a recliner.

Make sure to not eat for a few hours before going to bed.

I hope the Nexium solves it for you. If not, then you need to get a small unfill. Reflux is bad news.

See your doctor--I read in Lap band companion that severe and sudden onset of heartburn can be a sign of band slippage. I hope it's not the case....

Your history with the heartburn and hernia sounds like mine. But since I've been banded I haven't had a lick of trouble with it! (knock wood)

Good luck to you--I hope you get relief!

I got the Nexium yesterday, much better! I still have a mild flare up after eating - but its making a difference.

I actually walked in the park yesterday morning with one of the lapband surgeons in my local hospital group. He isn't my surgeon, but he walks with his patients and I sort of jumped in. He said to call again if the Nexium doesn't work. I will see how I am by Tuesday or Wednesday and decide.

Thanks for your responses!
