I had a VSG 3 years ago and I have been suffering with severe acid reflux. I saw my surgeon yesterday and he suggested a full bypass to relieve it.

I am baffled by this and I am wondering if I am alone or anyone else share this bizarre affect. Does anyone else notice their nose running after eating since surgery? Every single time I eat I have to blow my nose a few times before it stops running!</

Hey all! I’m at the start of my journey and just finished up all of my pre op testing. I understand that we need to take medicines in chewable or liquid form. Has anyone come across a medication that doesn’t come in those forms? I am on Sertraline
