Hi I was wondering how you were doing after your gastric bypass? I have terrible bile comming up at night and after I eat and I was wondering how you feel with the bypass and has it helped you with your weight loss?
I had my sleeve since 2010 and starting to gain again its my fault I am stuck on werthers hard candy,
take care, Lisa
I just joined this sight because of the same thing happening to me so my sister suggested it to me. 5 days ago I aspirated and within 36 hours I had a chest x-ray and turns out this can and did turn in to what is called "aspiration pneumonia". I am also on the same medication only the XR (extended release). The first few times this has happened I just coughed up acid/bile for several days. This time it not only caused the aspiration it also got into my nasal cavity and filled my lung. I had my gall bladder removed 5 years ago as well as my Vegas nerve last year, due to producing too much acid after surgery. In fact I had a hole develop in my intestine several inches below the pouch" and almost died in Dec 2011. This resulted in a semi redo of the bypass. I love that I have lost over 190lbs but it seems I am now developing some issues 2 years after. As I get more info on this bile aspiration I would be more then happy to share with you. I see a doctor on 11/20. I am hoping it not related to my WLS.
I have been having terrible reflux too. I had the sleeve in 2009 and had my gall bladder out at the same time. I've had two scopes that showed nothing, and finally today an Upper GI which showed reflux and a hiatal hernia. I've been reading about reflux. I didn't know that there were two kinds. I'm betting mine is both! This was an interesting article:
My surgeon says I may have to have RnY to cure it. We'll know more next week.
