    Hi

    Can I ask, are you taking any sort of acid inhibitor, Like Lansoprazol or omeprazol, if not you should be.

    Hi Gemma

    Glad it all went well for you. I think your first port of call should be your GP and if she/he can’t help, phone your wls team as heartburn/indigestion shouldn’t be part of your post surgery symptoms. In fact, before my bypass, I used to get through about half a litre of gaviscon a week. Since surgery, I have never had to take it – not once in 4 years.

    Please let us know how you get on 😉

    If I understand the operation correctly the little bit of stomach left produces very little in the way of stomach acid so you should not really be suffering from heart burn. The bypass is well known to fix acid reflux because of this.

    Unless I have that wrong.
