I'm planning on having a colectomy later this year for CI. However, a few years ago I was diagnosed with acid reflux, and it's pretty bad. I've elevated the bed, take protonix during the day and zantac at night. When I had my endoscopy three years ago, I was diagnosed with Barretts esophagus.
I'm convinced the acid is a result of food sitting inside me for so long. I was wondering if anyone else ever had a problem with acid that was helped with having a colectomy?
