You Rang! Have had barrettes for over 20 years, I get a edo every year to check it out, although it hasn't changed in 15 years since I had a Nisan fundiplaction, Which totally cured the reflux instantly,
About wls, the sleeve is a cause of reflux, several doctors in NYC, were very reluctant to do my DS because of it. post fundi, Once you have a wls be it rny or sleeve you cannot have the fundi. the fundi is where they make the pouch, or it is removed in the sleeve.
Dr Gagner rx the special sleeve under the fundi, which, no other doctor would do in NY. Partly because I suspect they want to do everything laproscopic.
Dr Antone in Omaha had no problem doing me. and i am totally reflux , barrettes free. and my DS is working perfectly.
the max benefit of the sleeve wore off after 18 months, and the DS is seeing me through, i suggest going all the was, visit DSFACTs.com
