ALL UK domiciled GERD sufferers should read this;
especially if you are hoping for Linx surgery, which sounds much better than a lifetime of suffering, high drug use, or the alternative op. Fundiplication.
You should also respond by 22 May if you want to endorse this proceedure, and I am sure, the views of those who have already had this op., wherever they live, will be given due regard.
Please don't hang about, my original post on this has only received 90+ views so far, hopefully, all of these have gone on to post comments to NICE!
NB, my own symptoms are fairly mild, my major problem being poor vocalisation due to damage to vocal chords, which crept up on me over about 12m. with very little other obvious symptoms. and I would probably not score high enough to qualify for surgery at this time.
