You are a quick one :) You almost repeated verbatim what my most recent Dr. told me when you wrote "If someone is reacting to very little reflux, and surgery can't get reflux to zero, then perhaps the surgery won't help". He said that, and that if I get the surgery that he thinks I'll have the same symptoms and just have a few holes in my stomach for the effort. I was referred to him by Mayo clinic, and since my other docs have told me surgery isn't a good idea I feel like I have to take their word on it. As bad and constant as the symptoms are, even I am not stubborn enough to go against the advice of 3 doctors and the surgeons I have seen as well...
I just wonder what can be diagnosed with the way I have come out on tests. I mean, with all the tests I have done I wish they could just say "ok, its hypersensitive esophagus", or "ok, it is GERD". Next time I am going to ask my Dr. how close a diagnosis is, or if it is just impossible to be definitive on one, or what is the deal.
Thanks for your advice :)
