  1. I am going to be scheduled for a revision due to high amounts of acid, but now most food and drink hurts and the types that don't I shouldn't eat. Also everything is making me nauseous and I am in 4 types of meds for this. Have a call into my Dr, but wondering if anyone here has experienced this and what did you do?
  2. If you are only eating 3 meals, try putting yourself on a schedule to eat every 3 hours to equal 5 times a day, that will help you get the extra calories. I would have yogurt or a meat and cheese roll up. I would have a sticky note on my desk with the times that I would have my meals. Good luck.
  3. Hi, I am Doreen and I am 2 years out from my Gastric Sleeve on March 24, 2015. It was the best decision that I have ever made and would not change it for the world. Although in the last few months, since September 2016, I have been dealing with constant pain and nausea from severe GERD and Acid reflux. I have been in and out of the hospital since that time and have undergone test after test until the last one showed the insurance company that I indeed have this going on. So at some point in April 2017 I will be undergoing a revision to a Gastric By-Pass. I look forward to the next experience and understand that this will fix the issues. Fingers crossed as I have an appointment with the Bariatric Psychologist on April 7, which will take me to get my date on the books.
