I have had GERD since about 3.5 weeks post-op; I am now 7 wks. I had been on Prilosec since surgery, have also tried Aciphex and as of today was switched to Dexilent. I have reflux almost every day. It doesn’t hurt, but it makes me feel like I can’

I have been having issues with reflux for the past 1.5 weeks and am getting very discouraged. I’m trying to tell myself that it’s still very early days, things could change very radically, but constantly not feeling well and worrying about getting

I have seen posts where people say they are foaming or have the foamies. What does that mean?

Tomorrow will be one month since my VSG. Things were going really well until last Sunday, when I began to have reflux issues. I talked to drs office on Tues and Wed., and the nurse spent a long time with me asking about what I was eating, the timing of

I’m feeling a bit discouraged so thought I’d come to a place where people can relate. I had surgery 3.5 weeks ago, and until a few days ago, things were going pretty well diet-speaking; I’m in the pureed phase. The last few days, though, I’ve b

Well, it’s my first full day home. Having some problems with nausea. I took a pill that my dr prescribed for that, but it makes me woozy.

My surgery date is two weeks from today (9/20). I can feel my anxiety start to rachet up. I started my 1000-calorie diet today in preparation as instructed. I've been cutting back quite a bit after my last weigh-in, so going to 1000 hasn't been too bad

i am pre-op VSG. I now take Citrucel in water for constipation, but I’m pretty sure i wont be able to do that post-op, since you can’t drink that stuff slowly or it expands in the glass (yuck). Does anyone here take fiber supplements that they can

Hi Lightweights,

I am new to OH so don’t have my signature set up yet, but I started at BMI 37, have a surgery date for VSG 9/20, and am both excited and terrified.

There are a lot of people whom I have not told about my upcoming surg
