I’ve been getting a lot of heartburn lately. Is this normal? I didn’t get it before surgery or for the first couple of weeks. I’m not eating near as much as I did before surgery.
From what I have heard, acid reflux after surgery is a common thing. Not drinking enough fluids and avoiding foods that are too spicy can cause this. Research has shown that one in five people experience heartburn or acid reflex weekly. Two in five people experience this once a month. Have you consulted your doctor about this?
