I was wondering if having the gastric sleeve done would help my reflux and gerd go away?

Weight loss

Gastric
The gastric sleeve itself will not improve GERD. However, weight loss often reduces or eliminates reflux.

How does a gastric sleeve slip ?

Bands slip

Gastric
A gastric sleeve is a procedure where you remove 80% of your stomach making it into the shape of a shirt sleeve (hence the name). So there is nothing to slip. A gastric band on the other hand can slip. It is usually the result of a hiatal hernia that causes the slip. A slip can usually be fixed by repositioning the band, although sometimes the band has to removed.

What is the definition or description of: Gastric sleeve?

Banana stomach

Gastric
Basically we take your stomach from the size of a football and cut in down to the size of a banana. And throw the excess stomach away. The sleeve has an expected weight loss of about 60-70% of your excess weight at about 12-18 months.

Gastric sleeve resection surgery, what does this involve?

Operations

Open-uri20140313-14477-4s6zv7
In terms of ultimate weight loss, the bypass would be #1 followed closely by sleeve. The band would be a distant third. For fixing problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, the ranking is the same. Sleeves are a good option for someone without diabetes or heartburn. For a sleeve, we remove 80-85% of your stomach, so that your stomach ends up being a tube.

Dr. Joseph A. Kuhn answered:

could i use flexeril after a gastric sleeve?

Yes. Ok

Cyclobenzaprine_hcl
Flexeril is a muscle relaxant. It should have no unusual effect after a gastric sleeve. Usually short term use for muscle spasm in back. Not really a good long-term drug.
