Stomach Problems After Gastric Bypass Surgery

I know it has been a while since I have posted but I broke my arm 3 months ago and the recovery process has taken up all my extra time. Now I just found out I will have to have surgery on a torn muscle that occurred during the same fall :-(

During this whole time, I have been taking pain killers in pill form and have gotten a couple doses of steroid packs ... tough on any ones stomach but extra rough to someone who has had gastric bypass surgery. After this last steroid pack I had heartburn/acid ingestion for a week AFTER I took the last pill! The doctor believes it is all because of my gastric bypass surgery and that has sped up his decision to use surgery to fix the tear.
