Glad to hear all the updates. Thanks Kitt.
I had my Nissen surgery in Oct 08. It worked great. No longer the coughing until I threw up or completly losing my breath.
My cough was still there, but different. This fall it has been bad so I finally broke down and saw an allergist on Monday. My lung function is fine, she tested it. Found that I am allergic to dust mite, outside mold, cats (don't have one), weeds and ragweed.
She gave me load of samples and one of them was a new allergy tablet. Took one Tuesday and could tell a world of difference. When I cough it is just a natural cough, no mucus, no long hard coughing.
I will start allergy shots as soon as the serum comes in. I choose that since insurance pays for it and they won't pay for the newer allergy tablets. Or at least only for a few a month if at all.
I am so excited to feel normal again. Hopefully with the shots and some otc allergy tablets I will be cough free. The dr told me that Sam's has some allergy tablets, she said about 100+ and that they cost $20.00. She said I could take one of them in the morning and one at night. The tablet she gave me is a 24 hour one.
Hope everyone improves soon. Jayne
