Barium swallow shows severe reflux

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had their barium swallow or upper GI series show severe reflux? I took three bites, and it came back up to my throat. I have an EGD next week, looking at going from VSG to GB. I have horrible adhesions as it is from previous major surgeries so I am scared. I had my spleen, part of my pancreas and kidney removed years ago. My sleeve left too much fundus in....due to adhesions thus I have the severe GERD.

My real questions surround the barium swallow. I have read lots of stories of reflux, but most told me that it didn't show up on the barium swallow. I am wondering if it did, was it easier to get approval for the revision?


Thank you!
