VSG surgery Acid and grooves


The effects of my long weekend are finally starting to wane and I'm beginning to feel like myself again. The heaviness has lifted and I actually managed to get some stuff done around the house. I'm a complete and total houseworkaphobe so I look for any excuse to get out of it. Runny nose, slightly scratchy throat, stubbed toe, paper cut, ANYTHING at all and you might as well forget about it. So if the house is clean you can guarantee that I'm feeling better.

My stomach has been a'rumblin, a'grumbin, and a'tumblin like a cement mixer these last few days. I'm experiencing lots of physical hunger, but I've had very little desire to eat. I've been having my protein shakes for breakfast and sometimes lunch if I feel like chugging another one, but my solid food intake has been really small.  Sleevie Wonder has been telling me that he wants food, but I'm just going about my day twittering, facebooking, and otherwise paying no mind to his demands. I really need to take care of that before Sleevie goes all FEED ME, SEYMOUR!!!!! and eats the metermaid and makes a mangled mass of maroon and marrow in my otherwise peaceful abode. Yeah, I don't need any yellow tape around my house or bespectacled CSI dudes swabbing the grout in my floor.

Acid reflux has to be the worst about about the gastric sleeve. I've been told that if I hold my horses I might be among the privileged few whose reflux and acid issues go away. Hmmm, I'm not really gonna bet on it because there seems to be a ton of variability with that. Some get better, some don't and that's pretty much it. I need to get back in the routine of taking my pills and supplements first thing upon waking. I was taking them like I'm supposed to, but then something messed up my routine and I just gotta get back into the groove. I will though. I will.

  1. I used to have really bad acid reflux BEFORE my sleeve, and haven't had any after... but I know it is definitely different for everyone. The only thing that jumps out at me is that you are barely eating. This could make the acid worse because your stomach is creating the acid when it expects food... and without putting in food, there's nothing for the acid to do and it builds up. Just an idea though, I have no idea if that's right.


I love feedback more than cake. Make my day!
