Good Morning and wondering how your night went ? With all you have going on , I think you have the right to be worried but know we are here and so many members are supporting you. Kindly, Kitt
I had definitely noticed during my lurking what great group you all have. It is very much appreciated.
My night went pretty good. The heartburn subsided enough to take the Carafate. I knew it didn't neutralize acid, I just didn't know if I would be sealing the acid in and definitely didn't want to do that.
My morning was a little dicier. Stomach upset from another new med, not GERD related. But I made the mistake of having a throat lozenge that set off the HB. I was at that time waiting for the ZANTAC to kick in. I had taken the ZANTAC an hour previously. I had to go ahead and take some TUMS and Maalox, so it was only for about
40 minutes that I had the HB. I'm trying not to worry about
every little thing, like "will the ZANTAC work now that I've taken the Tums, etc." Knowing that mistakes can be very painful. Being able to come here for answers is very helpful.
I'm in a good place now. I'm not sure how I will manage the Carafate drill. My stomach is never empty after I start eating, or at least I don't think it is. Maybe just morning and evening and then symptom control for when HB kicks to protect the esophagus. Getting my esophagus to heal is my biggest concern.
Well the gang is waiting for me to go out.
Hope everyone has a great day.
