I am still rather new post surgery, only 11 weeks, so hope this is just a temporary complication. I have a history of hypersenstivity in my esophagus as well so it may just be reacting to changes and not necessarily related to acid. However, that being said, it doesn't take much acid to cause me pain. Most people who reflux the levels of acid that I did wouldn't have felt any pain. I am hoping that I just need to get over the hypersensitivity somehow and if there is acid leaking up, control that through diet and not drugs. I tried PPIs, tricyclic antidepressants, neurontin, none of which worked so I chose surgery. Now I am scheduled to meet with my doctor again to see what I need to do at this point. I am convinced the surgery has helped a lot, but disappointed that I may have to still rely on low dose PPIs or other drug therapy. Yet, it is all worth it to stop the pain.
Thanks for listening.
