Its been 3 year's since my Poem was done by Dr Nageshwar Reddy at Asian Institute of gastroenterology ...

I have lots of reflux and choking once in a day at least at times if I am eating out its very embarrassing in front of people..

I choke on small bites until i drink hot water and vomit i dont feel better..

I am feeling depression does anyone else has similar prob?

Also my stomach is bloating all the time

Body looks normal but tummy is looking bigger.

If there is anyone in group from Telangana state Hyderabad plz connect with me.

    I think you need to be examined to find out the underlying cause of your troubles. You may be right that it is primarily caused by reflux, but it also sounds like you have a problem with food reaching your stomach properly. It can be very dispiriting and certainly will affect your quality of life, but it is not uncommon for people to need a review a few years after this procedure.

    Meanwhile you might try Gaviscon Advance to see whether this is beneficial.

    I'm so sorry to hear you're having so much trouble this soon after your surgery.

    My poem was in April of 2016 and I've had some troubles with reflux but not to the extent that you have. Time to have a follow up with your Gastroenterologist to see that nothing else is going on. Maybe you have postop scarring that could be causing trouble. At any rate a follow up is definitely due.

    God Bless you in finding answers!
