Recommended Posts

I was previously duagnosed with Barretts but after a number of years on PPIs, I now have a clean hill of health. I have been told GERD and heartburn can be a problem after vsg. I have also been told irs not an issue. My OCC consultant advised me that DrOrtiz leaves the curve at the top of the stomach in place and that helps stop heartburn.

Has anyone else received any info about this?

I had sleeve done in 2012, I still have to take a PPI.  The only way I don't have to take a PPI is if I am very strict with my food types, fluid consumed in a sitting and NOTHING to drink or eat before bed. That is hard for me as I take bed time medication so I have to have some fluid with those. Even 4oz of water at bed time is a killer for me.   It is hard I also have Asthma and that is really bad when I have re flux issues as the reflux irritates my lungs.
