In the UK and waiting for partial wrap along with hernia repair and what do I go and do today but have some curry!!! Arghh not worth the after effects!! Didn't help matters that I was then in a meeting for 2 hours straight after and as am sure you will all know its the dead zone and started slumping. Usual constant hoarse cough and acid coming up and down. Why do we do it to ourselves when we know the consequences. Only thing I can say is that I do it now because know that won't be able to do it afterwards.

Not trying to keep it quiet in work about waiting for the op but just not advertising the fact but blew my top at two very insensitive team members when they complained about my coughing. They even had the cheek to say "oh got a piece of hair in your throat". Was not best pleased as am quite placid and very rarely lose my temper.

Feel very tired now but know must go and make something to eat so has time to go down before bedtime. Hopefully that will get rid of this horrible gnawing and acid taste.

Sorry about the rant but needed to vent and no one home!!!!!

Ive had similar experiences. Im studying and suffer from LPRD so there are some days that I would go to class and start coughing every now and then but I always take a bottle of water with me to calm it down. I also carry Almax (sort of antiacid) so I just take one if it gets worse, you should too!

Try not to eat anything too heavy before a meeting.

Try coughing like that 24/7 for three years. That's what made me go ahead and get the surgery.

Hi Joy
Am with you on that I have been coughing like that for over 3 years. Thats why I have finally taken the plunge and agreed to the op!! It was the insensitivity of my fellow colleagues who on a daily basis see me struggling sometimes to breathe after a coughing episode, that really upset me and made me lose my temper!!

I have a bottle of water on my desk permanently to try and help but as I am sure you know nothing does

I hope the surgery does as well for you as it did for me.

I never realized until after I had the surgery how much my coughing affected my co-workers. I have had people that work in the building but not in my department ask if I got some help with my asthma because they hadn't heard me coughing in a while... I had my hiatal hernia and Nissen Fundoplication going on 14 weeks ago.. they were not aware that I had been out for surgery just that I was gone for 2 weeks...
For me the surgery was a blessing...
Keep in touch and let us be your sounding board...
