idea  Hi, I guess I'm a forum jumper....ha ha.  No, I usually can be found at the Chronic Pain site....But since I have GERD also I thought I'd check it out....
Several years ago I had one of those 24 hr. PH tests done...That was as much fun as having a stick poked through my eye..Somehow the tube that was in my nose came out with a big knot in the end...no wonder it hurt every time I swallowed...  Anyway, after having the colonoscopy and endoscopy done the Dr. said that my lower esophageal sphincter didn't work and I had a Hiadel hernia (sp).  They said something about a stomach wrap surgery??? And they removed 3 polyps while they were in there.
I wake up at least 4 times a week choking, gasping for air, and swallowing over and over again until it subsides....I have never been so scared.  I thought I was dying.
Has anyone heard of this stomach wrap stuff?  Any info would be great..

Hi, Me!
I didn't know you had that going on,too! (Uniquelyme and I both are regulars on the chronic pain forum!)

I'm just learning about all this myself!

Hi Me-
Yep, heard of it and had it done twice. This time it's a keeper. My first was done wrong and it took almost 5 years for them to figure it out. Well actually it took my new surgeon 4 months to decide to go have a look inside my belly to see what was wrong and fix it. It was the other doctors who took 2 1/2 years to not be able to figure out what was wrong. So anyway, what you want to know?

Take care,
