Thanks for your response. I am guessing that in the future I will have surgery as well. I don't want to take Nexium for the rest of my life, plus I still don't get total relief from gerd taking it. I do watch my diet very closely. My wife gets exasperated with me always worrying about everything I eat. While we were dating, I was the one with the iron gut that could eat and drink anything.
I am glad that surgery was successful for you. It sounds like you can eat normally again and you have your life back again. I hope that when I have surgery it goes as well for me as it did for you. Hopefully this surgery lasts for the rest of your life.
It would be nice if that Medigus endoscope is as successful as laporscopic fundoplication. Recovery wouldn't be as bad. Sounds like the EsophyX procedure isn't very successful, and this Medigus procedure looks similair.
I am also wondering about physical restrictions after surgery. After complete recovery, is lifting and other strenous activities always restricted? I like to golf and if I felt better I would play racquetball and jog again. My parents have a farm and I like to help out as much as I can. Working around a farm does require the ability to lift and be active.
Thanks for all of your responses.
