I've had the same exact problem. I think I am FINALLY going to talk to my Primary and see if I can get a referral to the Gastro Doc
I am up because my husband is having this same problem right now and he also had his surgery at DWLSC. He had his surgery about 18 months ago and this is his second episode. Thanks for posting, now we know to go get tested to make sure there is no ulcer.
I'm about 5 weeks out from my gastric bypass surgery and am having quite a bit of acid reflux problems.(all else is going pretty well tho') I'm trying to not eat too late or eat anything that might generate the acid, but it's awful when it wakes me up at night... I feel like I'm breathing through mud and the spit-up is foamy with yellow acid. I had/have a hiatial hernia that has been around for years but the gerd was managed before surgery - it showed up on an ultrasound pre-op but no one said anything other than it was there.
I've talked to the bariatric nurse and she says things like, "hmmm, I don't know why it would be doing that". Yay! That's helpful. She did talk with the doctor - who told me to take my omeprezole 2x a day but it's not really helping that much...
Hopefully it settles down and I can wait till my 3-month follow-up but if not, I'll have to go in sooner. Unfortunately, I live 3-hours away from Seattle... so appointments are difficult - ugh!
I wanted to have the gastric sleeve and my heart has been set on this some time. I was very disappointed when I was told I had acid reflux. I was told this after I had my Scope done. The surgeon tells me sine I have esophageal issues that I wasn't aware of that I need the gastric by-pass. I still don't understand why bypass?
I notice all the questions on here are older. So I'll post my situation and see if anyone is having the same problem.
Little history of my life of Gerd. 18 years ago I had surgery for acid reflux. The one where they do the wrap. It worked. Then I got up to 288 and decided to have gastric sleeve surgery. After the surgery my acid reflux came back. The doctors told me the only fix would be to have gastric bypass surgery. It's worse now. Any suggestions or ideas on what my next step is to curing this?
