    Default Acid Reflux or indigestion

    Hi,

    I am exactly one week out from my sleeve. The last two mornings I have woken up with a burning in my throat. I have acid refux but it had been controlled by Omeprazole and even now I take a 20mg twice a day, as prescribed by my surgeon.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Did it go away after a while?

    I'm wondering if I am lying down too soon after I eat or if I may be eating too much. I did discover yesterday that filling your sleeve feels different than stuffing your stomach; it is a bit more subtle. I will be looking for that difference in the future.

    Thanks,
    Mary Jo

    Early on I had to stop eating 2-3 hours before going to bed to ensure that I wouldn't experience any reflux. I didn't have reflux before the sleeve, and take Prilosec 20mg once daily to avoid any issues. I could wean off of it, but I choose to stay on it even at almost 18 months post-sleeve. I haven't had any other reflux issues except a couple of breakthrough heartburn episodes after eating super spicy chipotle ranch sauce and jalapenos. I haven't tested the waters of weaning off my Prilosec as I have the mindset of "why fix something that isn't broken?".

    Also maybe stay away from dairy late in the day, might help.

    As you get thinner the problem may go away. I had acid reflux as a bandster but I don't seem to have it as a sleever. In any event you may want to continue with acid reducer's till the problem goes away.

    My Surgeon prescribed me a prevacid equivalent (2months worth) but I haven't even opened it. I have been fortunate to not have had acid reflux since my surgery. I was worried about it at first because I had gotten it pretty often before I had the surgery. I guess everyone is different.

    took me a month and a half to realize what it was, since it is so different from pre-surgery.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I think I was eating too close to bed time and I also think I was eating too much sometimes. I have not had a bad episode like I did the first two weeks post-op but it is still there in lesser amounts. I hope it contiues to get better and better.

    I'm new (as of today) to this forum, so I apologize if I don't know what I"m doing....because I don't! :-) I'm 10 days out and just yesterday started a burning sensation in my esophagus. I'm guessing acid reflux. Today I really started watching what I ate and when, but it has continued. It even happens with water. Any suggestions on what to do? Is it normal? Thanks so much. I'm still learning.

    Hi there,
    Yes, I am going on 7 weeks out and I was getting that same burning and that acid coming up in my throat and then it would go down the wrong tube and I would gag on it, it is the worst!! I did stop eating 2 hours before going to be and it did help it a lot, I do take that same ppi as you 2 times a day and it helps, but ya that stuff is the grossest thing ever!

    I had the same issue and im four weeks out. I kept feeling like something was stuck in my throat even when I didnt eat anything. Then I looked up one of the meds the dr. prescribed which was nexium for heartburn. Well I wasnt taking it because I never had heartburn before and never really knew what it felt like, but when I read up on the med, I found out it also helped with the swelling in the esophagus, and with acid reflux. Well I started taking that everyday and now the stuck feeling has gone away and I feel SO much better!!
