I had vertical sleeve gastrectomy done 3 years ago
Everything was going fine , I had lost about 55lbs in the first 6 months and kept it off for almost 2 1/2 yrs then I started to regain weigh
After investigations I found out I had developed hypothyroid , by now I have regained over 35 lbs
Besides I suffer extreme indigestion and intolerance to certain food,
I feel the bile rising all the time
Has anybody else experienced something similar

My doughter had a sleeve gastrectomy 15 months before. Now she is admitted with acute abdomen due to leakage from part of his surgery. Although the surgeon could clean up the abdomen but he believes that correction of this leakage is very difficult and has done a jejnostomy to start feeding through a tube and plans for putting a stent in the leaked part of the stomach. I am really doubt if this will work. Can somebody helps me.

Hello Anonymus, I had the same surgery 3 months ago, and I´m still with a leak in my stomach. been fed by a nose tube for 9 weeks, but this did nt solve much of the problem. A stent is one of the options to fix this, but not the smartest, according to a couple of doctos i have talked to, it is easy to put it on, but a real pain to remove it from the stomach, but i think it is easier in the states than in my country. I have to fly to another country to have it fixed :(. but there is one thing i dont understand in your post, your daughter is with the leak for 15 months???????

See my comments of February 11th above regarding belching! Domperidone or Domerid works very well.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question but this is something that you would need to ask your doctor. The answer will be based on other medications you are on and your general heath status.

Good luck!

In regards to that 'RIPPING-SENSATION FELT WHILE BENDING ETC" I am currently experiencing that 6 weeks after having the gastric sleeve surgery here in Auckland New Zealand. I have lost about 12 kgs since being discharged from hospital.I was so worried about the ripping pain I was experiencing I went to my G.P and asked for anti-biotics which I am taking now. But since reading that its due to weakened stitches I'm so happy and relieved and suppose will have to bear it and wait it out, have been taking panadol and tramadol for pain relief etc..This is a great forum!!thankyou all.
