last tuesday a barium swallow showed a mass on my duodenum.  today i was scoped it was a skin flap, but there was lots of bile in my stomach.  They found it last august too.  now he wants me to take carafate 4x a day along with 2 aciphex.  the question is how do i take these.  he said take aciphex wait 30 minutes, take carafate and then eat.  wont that prevent me from absorbing my food.  so lost im so sick of this when i asked where did the bile relux come from he said my first fudo.  so get an operation for acid reflux and end up with bile reflux.  2 months after fundo it showed nothing.  plus the did impedance 2 months out and i had 7 reflux episodes in 23 hours.  a year post fundo it showed 50 episodes plus 48 were supposedly non acid.  i am clueless what to do and how to space these meds out.  starting to feel pretty hopeless anyone with any ideas.  jumping off a bridge is out of the equation but this carousel never stops.  constant globus and ent symptoms.
