Terrible Acid

Hi Gang.
Quick question for you all if i may -
Had my right hemi op on the 18th December and came home xmas eve. Recovery has been text book and i feel better than ever!
However... i seem to be suffering in the evening from acid and heartburn. It gors if i pop a rennie but i never suffered from this before.
Has anyone else had experience of this?
Cheers.
Dan.

Hi @EssexDan sorry to hear you are suffering from acid reflux and heartburn. After my surgery I was automatically put n Omeprazole. Eventually came off it, by choice. However mine is now coming back again and it’s 3 years since my op. I’ve been taking Rennies too. I haven’t mentioned it to my Onc, but I’m seeing him on Thursday. I can’t explain why I had it, just wanted you to know you are not on your own. Love Diane :x::x:

EssexDan

Thanks @DianeS .
Its not really bad but enough to be just annoying you know.
I have the colorectal nurse calling me Friday with pathology results so will ask her i think.

DianeS

Good idea @EssexDan it’s always best to get these things checked out. Good luck, let us know how you get on. Diane :x::x::x:

Hi @EssexDan I too was given Omeprazole, took it fora while then slowly came off them, all good now :x:

I think this can be quite common following surgery @EssexDan

Like @DianeS Inwas given omeprazole post op too. I've tried to stop it a few times but acid reflux became a problem. It's certainly worth checking it out though!

Take care,

Karen 💚💛💜💙❤️

I take omeprazole too. I've tried coming off them and do forget occasionally but find if I've not had them for a few days I suffer.
