Frequent vomiting since post lap band surgery. GI showed decreased esophagus, motility, hiatal hernia. Suggestion?

I am post lap band surgery (11/2011). I lost about 35lbs but have not lost for about 3 months. Over the last 2-3 months I have had vomiting 4-5 times a week. My surgeon sent me for an upper GI and it showed decreased esphogus motility and a small hiatal hernia . I have an appt to discuss this with my surgeon the end or the week but I am anxious to hear what your suggestion would be.

Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, I would like to suggest that you should start an antacid like Omeprazole 40 mg along with Domperidone 10 mg once a day before meals.

Following precautions will be helpful :-
1. Avoid spicy/oily foods.
2. Do not miss a meal.
3. Avoid emotional/mental stress.
4. Avoid smoking/alcohol, if any.
5. Drink lot of pure water daily.

I hope this is helpful to you.
