 Well hello all:
 I had my TIF procedure done on July 18,2011. I followed my diet even more so than most, even the doctor said most people cheat but I didn't. yeah The rocovery process was horrible though, after 2 weeks of pure liquids I could not get my stamina back, dranke ensure, ate yogurt and cottage cheese and the like and slowly got to where I felt pretty good but a nagging lump in my throat forced me back to the surgeon, he sent me for a barium swallow and they saw a esophagial web, I told him that I would rather not be sedated to look at it after some investigation but my primary care doctor wents nuts and said we have to go in and look so I scheduled an EGD. It was done on a Monday morning and it took me until Friday of that week to get back outside the door of my house. smhair Since that time I have been hit with awful dizziness, it comes in attacks and is keeping me from working or having my life back. The primary sent me to an ENT who did some tests for vertigo and minears then a head MRI, nothing showed up so he wants to do a VNG but can't get in until Jan 13,2012, Can't wait that long so I visited another ENT in a bigger city nearby and he did a very thorough check on me. He looked down my nasal passages to my esphagus and said "I don't know whp told you you were cured of reflux because you have it all the way up to your larynx. We are going to do some more tests but the bad thing is I was put back on Nexium, am still dizzy and according to him have some serious silent reflux. I am dissapointed, I wish I had may done some more research on my surgeon, perhaps he was too inexperienced I don't know but I am very unhappy with the results.

Hi again, Sam.  It would be helpful if you added comments to your original thread you started a few days ago.  Several of us have already offered help, and if all the thoughts are considered together in one place, it helps orient others who may chime in.
 
Just a suggestion...

Thanks Bruce I have done just that to see if I get any results or experiences. I appreciate your helpfulness. I realize my case is an unusual case but it helps to sound off sometimes.
Thanks
