My pulmonary doc said since I have lost weight and am on gerd free diet and not aspirating anymore I don't have to have Nissan if I keep on this path.
I do have a large HH and surgeon said my LPR is from that. I dont want nissan because it will make my IBS worse.  I will have LINX down road only if it will help LPR which is still not completely gone.
If you can't have HH repair with LINX then not worth it.
Can you have surgery for just HH repair?  I was under the impression that you had to have NIssin for HH repiar?
Anyone know?  Thanks!

I am posting a lnk for you but please remember it should in no way take the place of talking with your Dr. re your concerns.
I am sure other members will be responding to you.  Keep us update on how you are doing.

I spoke with the manager of the surgical team here in the UK about the possibility of fitting the Linx and he stated that they will conduct the HH repair at the same time as fitting the device.

Best wishes
