Thanks guys.

Ppi less - the more I thought about...I wanted to go with the surgery that has been around and I have a surgeon here locally who can help me and if I have any problems.

I'm not so worried about the recovery but I just hope the surgery can help alleviate some of my symptoms.

For those with asthma...do you recall having your symptoms all the time or only after you eat? Also, do you recall if your ph test showed upright refluxing? Thanks

Asthma is a catch-22 situation - GERD can certainly make asthma worse, but asthma medication can worsen reflux. In particular the LABAs (long acting versions of ventolin reliever inhaler) has been proven to relax the LES. So if your reflux annoys your asthma and you take more medication for that you can enter a vicious circle.

For me, my reflux doesn't get to my asthma, so my chest physician allowed a complete change in inhaler strategy to try to prevent any interplay between my asthma meds and my reflux.
