About VSG

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss tool in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, following the major curve. The open edges are then attached together (often with surgical staples, glue and possibly cauterization) to form a sleeve or tube with a banana shape. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach and is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible.

ZEE heart... it burns!!!

I've been having alot of heartburn lately and I haven't been able to pin down what's doing it just yet.

Tonight I had 1 slice of cheddar cheese (old) and 3 medium sized shrimps with cocktail sauce for dinner.   Heartburn.
Earlier today, I had 2 tablespoons of tuna salad (made at home just with miracle whip and pepper) on plain saltines for lunch.  Heartburn.
Last night, I had 1 vietnamese spring roll for dinner.   Heartburn.

Not sure what the common denominator is just yet.  Anyone with suggestions, please, chime in.

I do not take ANYTHING for acid up to this point.  This is new-ish... probably last month or 2.


  1. I've had zero heartburn issues before being sleeved and I've had zero since being sleeved (coming up on 2 years here soon.) SO I don't even really have any advice for you EXCEPT that a lot of sleevers have to take a PPI. Talk to your dr. and see if trying one would be right for you. Good luck!

  2. I get heartburn occasionally. I never had it before the sleeve but after I have had it some. I take a PPI for about 10 days when I get it and it works well to keep it at bay. Also, if you are getting hungry at all, its probably that you have too much acid in your sleeve. Taking a PPI will help with that too.

  3. I always get heartburn from tuna. Perhaps that's the culprit.
