From what I understand, PPIs can weaken the LES. Does being off the PPI eventually allow the muscle to strengthen since it will be exposed to stomach acid again? Or do people who get off PPIs ultimately need LES surgery to tighten it up?

I too would like to know this ! I was told mine is loose and "gaping". Hoping mine tightens up whenever I wean off.

Someone I trust told me it will slowly strengthen when off the PPI. I hope so!
