Normally, with GERD, you would have a Nissen Fundoplication and not a gastric sleeve which is normally for weight loss of over a 100 pounds. I tell everyone that surgery should always be a last resort, and always seek a second opinion. The NF is major abdominal surgery, and the recovery period can be difficult and longer than expected. I had my surgery roughly 6 years ago, and I didn't feel much better until 6 months post-surgery. I felt like the "new" me at approximately one year.
