I've recently completed pre-op testing for the gastric sleeve weight loss surgery.  My surgeon recommended I have the Esophyx prior to surgery since the sleeve often increases GERD.  If I want it, I'll need to do it before the surgery as it can't be completed afterward.  Apparently this is a fairly new concept.  Anyone here have any experience or knowledge of these two things being performed together?

Hello and welcome.  To the best of my knowledge I have never seen a post by anyone who had the proposed procedure done for the reason you have explained.  That is not to say someone will be along with info for you.
I wish you well and hope your find answers to your concerns.
