Grim had a post-op bleeding ulcer a few years ago, that almost killed him, but it was not in the remnant part of the stomach.
But he thinks you should be concerned about "wicked bad" heartburn (you can hear his accent, can't you!?) and suggests getting yourself seen immediately if you have any bleeding at the wrong end.

What would the symptoms be for an ulcer
in my "old" stomach? I am having some issues and don't have access to my surgeons office and need advice
Pain would be one of symptoms, but if it's bleeding ulcer: weaknes, lower blood pressure, blood or coffee grinds like in a poop. Feeling light-headed, passing out, low rbc, hemoglobin, anemia, etc.
