I was taking Nexium, 2 times per day, since surgery I have reduced to 1 pill every 3rd day, which I rather think is good progress given where I was at. There are still many foods that I used to eat that I cannot tolerate, most of the time they make no sense either, I mean low acid type foods. It sems that the foods that hurt me most are fibrous foods, cereal, oatmeal, brocolli, all of those are simply off my diet. I made a list of everything that is going on, took it to my doctor yesterday , he is running blood work for a number of things to see if he can find out what is going on. I went back to work on Monday of this week, after 5 weeks off, made it 2 days and they nearly had to cart me out from being dizzy headed and feeling like I was going to fall out. So needless to say in my opinion the quality of my life is less than before, I cannot be happy with that and have to find some help from somewhere to get my quality of life back.
