Lately, I have been experiencing alot of upper chest pressure which I am assuming is Acid Reflux. I have the Lap Band and I do find that I vomit frequently. Does this cause the heartburn, reflux, or GERD??

do you really vomit or is it just the food coming up from the esophagus - i do this all the time but it isn't really coming from my stomach - just the esophagus - i just noticed this is from 3 years ago, i hope you let me know how you are doing now. i just got diagnosed with barretts 2 years after my lapband surgery
