    Default Sleeve July 3 - Gerd

    Hello,

    Wonderful support group. I had gastric sleeve July 3. I'm following Doctor's plan. But begining have burning in middle of my chest. After any protien liquids or puree phase. Is this part of healing? Does burning sensation eventually go away? What can I do for temp relief? It hurts! Thank you, Gary

    Hi Gary
    Congrats on your surgery.
    Did your surgeon give you any medication for gerd? If yes, take it, if not ask for some.
    It can occur and go away - or if really unlucky might hang around.
    Definitely ask for some medication for relief.

    My doctor prescribed something for me "just incase," but I never had to use it. Contact your doctor so that they can prescribe something. Some physicians want you to take it for a few weeks after surgery.

    Thank you Kiwigal and Kenson!

    I appreciate the welcome to group and suggestions.

    I contacted my Doctor and recommended Omeprazole.

    Today feel better. Maybe had too much protien shake in short period.

    I'm on 3rd week healing.

    For anyone, what are the most challenging during first 1-3 months of healing and adjustments?

    It's definitely new to me and my body is adjusting.

    Thank you.

    It's the balancing act of protein, water and healthy carbs -- easy to know, but early on my stomach was a mess. Now, unless I eat too quickly it behaves. You'll get the hang of it quickly Be kind to yourself. Lots of inside & outside changes
