ive been really lucky not to have reflux since getting my sleeve almost 6 months ago. Except his nice when I ate too close to bed time and that went away quickly. What I'm wondering is can it become a problem at any time you f I don't have it now, even if I don't eat too much or too close to lying down and eat the right things? Or is this a luck of the draw thing? I really don't want a revision ever.
Also before surgery I had very small hiatus hernia which was repaired during VSG and mild monsymptomatic reflux. Now symptoms now, just wondering if it can pop up out of the blue.
It can hit any time. I've seen many that had it from Day 1, and others where it doesn't come on for 3 or 4 years. Just hope that was a random thing, do your best to eat well, and hope it never bothers you.

Developing GERD is one of my chief worries, right up there will regain. I had a bit at about 2 months post op, but it went away. Praying it stays away.
