Just wondering if anyone has had the TIF within the last 3 months? I am wondering what your recovery time is and how you are feeling.
 
Thank you

I had the surgery the last week of August. Very little discomfort, soft foods for 3-4 weeks or so. I can still feel the surgical site even now, especially if I fold my arms, but it's not painful.

The procedure was successful in bringing my DeMeester score into the "normal" range, but since I have LPR symptoms, normal reflux is still enough to cause problems in my throat. I am unable to take PPIs, so I am not doing so well...

I am happy to hear that you had no discomfort after the surgery. I am worried that my Dr. has only done 2 or 3 of these surgeries. So, that is my only worry.

PPI's don't work for me either. One good thing is that I don't have LPR. I have lost over 25 lbs the hard way, but that is changing. I pray that you get better.
