Day 18 Post Linx installation
So far pretty good. Moved down my PPIs from 60mg to 40mg to 20mg to Zantac. The last two days I have only taken one Zantac 150mg (ranitidine). So far no problems. It might be a bit too fast (ppi rebound) but I am really excited to get off my meds. I still am avoiding carbonated beverages and meats such as steak, however i ate jerk pork/chicken a few days ago without a problem. I chew carefully; especially when eating meat & breads. Spicy food seems to be no problem. Ate kung pao chicken last night for dinner and accidentally ate one of those supper hot red peppers. Besides the initial pain of something that hot in my mouth :) I was fine. Quite a change from before the install.
In general, far better than with GERD but there is a tradeoff that one must be more careful to chew and not gulp liquids especially the first bite or drink. In my opinion a small price to pay...and as I heal these trade offs are suppose to diminish
