    Re: Gaining weight on liquid pre op diet?!?!?

    I lost during the pre-op diet, yet I'm the "slow loser type" and gain with almost every meds I take.

    Re: Acid Relux ?

    Many people have reflux before the sleeve, because it's a consequence of obesity.
    Some people lose the weight, have less pressure on their abdomens, then the reflux is gone.
