You should definitely discuss this with your surgeon. I wouldn't take the word of a gastroenterolgist, who is not a specialist on weight loss surgery, without speaking to your surgeon.
Good luck on your upcoming surgery!
I had those polyps years ago and they never reoccured. They are not a reason to not have the RNY if that is the surgery you want. If you have a history of reflux, you are best off with the RNY
I actually had surgery years ago to reverse my reflux but in order to have my RNY, I had to reverse the reflux surgery in order to have the RNY and I have not had any reflux since - I just take a PPI as a precaution but have no polyps on any endoscopies since

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
Reading these replies have kept my spirit up! I was incredibly bummed when I had my Gastroscopy today... I have a Hernia (Hiatel)I think Dr. Wang told me while I was still dozy. And I have 5 polyps as to which he biopsied one or them all? He said it is being tested. I am sure like all of yours they will be fine!
I too want the best chance, most rapid avenue of weight loss with exercise and eating right. I want an RNY Operation. I am glad to hear the Hernia can be fixed, as well as the Polyps are a non-issue.
