It has been a long time since I have posted, but I am hoping that someone out there has gone through this. On Monday I had my 1yr. post-op appointment with my surgeon. I was asked how my GERD has been....and well it isn't any better post-op....it is actually worse. I am on daily medication for the heart burn. I also take tums & Phenergan (for nausea 3x a day). My dr. wanted to rule out Barrett's Esophagus & also to see if my hernia had grown due to the amount of "heartburn" I was having. I had an egd done yesterday & sure enough....I have Barrett's and this acid reflux i've been having is actually bile reflux as seen during the egd! My dr. changed my meds & I will be following up w/him in 3wks. He mentioned that the only way to eliminate the bile reflux would be with a sleeve revision to gastric bypass surgery. I am young & would like to take care of this asap. Anyone out there had a similar experience?????
