    Re: Stockings and metallic taste in mouth

    The metallic taste is also from after effects of anesthesia, and I never had to wear compression stockings. I did, however; have that taste for a while. Brushing your teeth and tongue will help and...

    Re: Barrett’s esophagus

    Perhaps a RNY will be suggested vs a sleeve. Ask the doctor and do some "google" searching for having a bypass with this condition. Good luck, and don't give up .
