Did you talk to a GI about this?

Hi Daisy,
What you're going through is not all that unusual, I'm afraid. There are lots of little quirks that can create problems that aren't picked up on tests.

I had the surgery last February, and it helped me a lot. I had severe asthma, and the surgery definitely helped clear it up. My voice was also affected. I have allergies as well, so it's a combo one-two punch to the vocal chords. That said, I've had a sour taste in my mouth for the past three months. I had a barium swallow that showed my wrap was intact and no hiatus hernia. It did show that I retained a small amount of barium and a reflux if air that sent the barium up and down the esophagus.

I haven't been back for a response from my GI doc, but it'll be interesting. It's more frustrating to know you have a problem, and have the tests not show anything wrong. I don't think my doc must think much of the results, because he never contacted me after the test that was done a month ago.

I used to be able to sing pretty well (I'm a teacher and sing a lot with my kids), but my voice has gotten worse again.
It would be interesting to know what your ENT saw that made him so sure that the symptoms were caused by reflux.

You should get your ENT to send a report to your GI doc, and go see him again.
Good luck getting to the bottom of it. I'm going to see my GI doc in a couple of weeks, so maybe I'll have an idea of what's going on then.
Take care,
