My surgeon suggested RNY (gastric bypass) due to my long history of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). I absolutely refused! Despite 2 complete GI work ups (including just about every diagnostic known, and the last work up was completed not 3 months before my surgery), it turned out that my surgeon repaired a hiatal hernia found when he got in there to do the VSG. Many people here report that they have hiatal hernia's repaired at the time of surgery. That plays a huge role in reflux. So too does being obese.
I am now close to 9 months out and my GERD is no worse. I would say even improved, although I have NOT attempted to stop my PPI meds, yet.
If you are not on meds, give those a try and see if your reflux improves, before you have surgery. DON'T let anyone decide which WLS you end up having......do the research and make your own decisions. I LOVE my sleeve and would not have wanted anything else. Good luck.
Maintain daily activity levels and practice clean eating........still battling some unhealthy behaviors!
