Get involved: Overweight causes both reflux & fatigue. Reflux treatable with meds. Make sure fatigue is not from low thyroid or sleep apnea (is she nodding off?). If she already had obesity surgery, we wont solve this over the internet. She has to work with her team & to want to get better using diet and daily exercise. Glad you are involved. Why dont you go with her to the doctor visits to see how you can help.
