I had a bypass because I had SMAS which is when my huge artery crushes my Duoedeom and wouldn’t let food pass to my stomach and ever since then I have a cyclistic vomiting syndrome I weigh 97 pounds fully dressed and can never gain the weight I need back before the cycle of vomiting starts again.  I get this burning in my gut around my belly button and antacids and pepto helps the heartburn, but not the burning in the pit of my stomach around my belly button.  I am miserable and I will try anything to get some relief.
