GERD After Surgery
On-going issues with acid reflux, or Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), is a common side-effect for patients and survivors. Despite a new anatomy that repositions your stomach, the amount and strength of reflux may be different and often times more than the reflux experienced before treatment.
Similar to before treatment there are a variety of ways to limit GERD.
- Diet, in terms of content and frequency, can play a role in the amount of reflux experienced.
- Different medications may help reduce incidence of GERD
Consult with your doctor to see what treatment would work best for you.Source: Jackson Siegelbaum Gastroenterology
