  1. I love the fairlife milk and its great for the added protein !! I didnt mind the price but I dont drink milk everyday.
  2. They dont know and were going to try to solve it but have not heard anything in months. I had same issue with coughing and aspirating at night until I was put on Dexilant and for the most part it took care of the night stuff but not the burning which I still have. I hope it fixes everything for you
  3. It took a good 2 months or more before the pain went away to start functioning normally I would say. I did not have to do any diet whatsoever before surgery. I wouldnt think you would have to either since you are still at goal weight and are doing this solely for the GERD. I am curious to hear if it gets rid of your GERD after a few months when you are all healed up. I still have GERD and am on the same PPI I was on with the sleeve although my esophagus has healed from a D to an A.
  4. It took me awhile to get use to not having restriction after the revision and in the end its been better as far as it is not as hard to maintain a lower weight. I ended up losing 25 more lbs and have been maintaining the loss for 8 months. I am 11 months post op now. The surgery itself was worse for me and the healing process seemed longer as I had a hernia repair on top of the revision. I was advanced for soft foods at 1 week post op and had no issues other then DUMPING on dairy and protein cereal. I dont mess around with cereal of any kind still. I dump on heavy carbs( biscui
  5. I cant either and was told it was normal. Not sure how others do after a bypass.
  6. Hi, I seen where you say you still have GERD with RNY and I do also. You are the first person I have seen to have it after RNY. What does your DR. say the reason is for this considering RNY was suppose to get rid of it ? Are you still on your PPI ? I still take the same dosage I did before the revision but have gone from erosive esophagitis D to A.
  7. Things may change for you considering you are only 7 months out. I have the gassy problem at times and it has not changed but I am almost 11 months post revision. I rarely get enjoyment anymore eating either. What are you dumping on? I would imagine you are not getting enough food if you are dumping a lot and weak.
  8. I feel you with the bat wings, they are the worst for me also and here comes summer !!!! I swear ugh lol. I have contacted a surgeon but its $5000 and I dont have that kind of money to spend especially now with covid and not knowing what will happen 1 day to the next. I still think about it though, maybe one day sigh
  9. I am a little over 10 months post op weighing in at 159 this morning. Things are going well although I have been battling with head hunger on and off for the last few weeks. I feel like somedays I just want to eat and other days I could care less, not having restriction is still a little depressing but as far as weight loss goes and maintaining it has been much easier then the sleeve and I hope that continues ! I have not been contacted other then 1 time to have the Bravo test and am still having GERD issues but it has gotten better since I started doing half dose of PPI in morning and
  10. I dont vomit either and its horrible when you have a dumping episode !! The only thing I can do is lie down until it passes or I am able to fall asleep.
  11. So sorry that you have gone through so many horrible things. Hoping you can get in and get the help you need soon. Things will get better hang in there.
  12. Thanks for starting this topic. I myself have been dealing with things that I just couldnt seem to get to when I was obese. Seems like the weight always got in the way of everything and up until recently I had been keeping myself distracted with other things besides food to avoid all the baggage. I did go see the bariatric phycologist but since none of this is a food issue I have been sent elsewhere. Come to find out at this age in life I have anxiety and possible PTSD from childhood. I have been burying all this plus other issues through the years causing me to go from depression t
  13. Congratulations !!! Good luck on your journey !
