I've been reading some posts where people are talking about wanting the LINX and keep seeing people saying that you can control your acid reflux with diet changes. I have eaten healthy for most of my life. I don't eat fast food, I'm not an alcoholic, I don't smoke, I excercise, etc.
I may just be having a bad day but to be honest, I want to enjoy life! I WANT to have a glass of red wine when I get home from work everyday. I WANT to have a nice garlic sauce with my seafood...I DO NOT want to have to watch for the rest of my life watching everyone else enjoying the things that I keep being told to avoid!
So much of our lives involve food and drink. I feel SO DEPRIVED all the time and feeling guilty everytime I cave in and having something that isn't GERD friendly. I HATE THIS!!!!!
I'm just venting..... I want the LINX. I've only been dealing with the GERD thing for about 3 months or so but I can tell you that I absolutely do NOT want to deal with this any longer. I'm sick of it!
I have an endoscopy on 5/24, so we'll see what happens. I don't hold out much hope though because I know they are just going to tell me that my LES is loose...same thing I was told 8-10 years ago (but I went to 8 full years without any reflux at all). I really don't know what it's going to accomplish.
