Hi guys,

I'm only three days post op, but whenever I drink protein shakes or eat my chewable vitamins I am getting reflux....will this go away?

My understanding is yes but did they give you an antacid to take every day or did they prescribe you one?

My surgeon prescribed me the 40Mg TWICE a day. You might consider upping the dose to twice a day instead of once. Although, it's always best to ask your doctor first.
