Will Gastric Bypass “fix” gastroparisis symptoms?
I have acid reflux with grade 4 esophagitis and severe gastroparisis. I have had the linx and two failed fundiplications, as well as a pylorplasty. I had chemotherapy 2 years ago and all of these things got worse following the chemo and after the initial fundiplication. My gastroenterologist at MD Anderson is now highly recommending a gastric bypass. I know the bypass will help (fix) the acid reflux. However, I am wondering if it will “fix” the gastroparisis symptoms, i.e., constipation (for which I have to take massive doses of laxatives everyday), severe bloating and constant gas and nausea and vomiting. Although, I know the continued reflux is a danger, the gastroparisis symptoms create more life limitation for me at this point.
Can someone please help shed some light on this for me and tell me if after having a gastric bypass, if your gastroparisis symptoms improved?
Thank you in advance.
