Pam, I have also had the nissen surgery probably 13 or 14 yrs ago, I know it was before all this other stuff started, and when I could eat breads I had to be careful and wash it down or it seemed to get stuck. I have heard they have impoved the surgery since I had it done. I can not vomit either and if I do burp it takes me by surprise cause I rarely do it.
I also take clonodine to get my BP down if it goes real high and my other meds aren't doing the job, my BP is all over the place. I take several meds that can cause dryness but when I have to take clonodine it dries me out even more. I also have sjogren's to add to the mix so I have to be very careful when I eat cause I choke very easily. I have to carry water with me everywhere I go cause my throat gets so dry I start gagging and can be quite embarrassing. Talking only makes it worse.
My voice is lower than it use to be but I attributed it to smoking but maybe it's not.
Gee isn't life just a barrel of laughs???
luv and hugs
