Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I am glad you decided to join us as you will find interacting with the wise and wonderful members of this forum is truly a supportive and caring experience.

I am happy to hear you are going to have another scope done and please do make your list of questions for the Doctor so you remember to ask about all your concerns and sx.

Also do not be afraid to ask for clarification re any tests or meds ordered. You are your own best advocate.

Hapy New Year.

Hi, I had the "dreaded" acid reflux surgery 12 days ago.
I had "silent" GERD. My main symptom was a chronic cough.
My cough is almost gone now. The surgery was not that bad for me. I found a excellent doctor in south GA and he did such a wonderful job.
Please find out everything that is available to you before deciding on the surgery. Then find the best surgeon.
