My current symptoms situation is as follows:
Some days I feel 80-90% normal (some bitterness and a little bit of burning feeling in the mouth, a low heartburn flicker in the chest). I may feel like this for 3-4 days, but then I get a bout of more severe reflux and heartburn - pretty much randomly - that leaves my mouth burning like crazy and my throat all burny and although it goes away within the day, it leaves me with this raw feeling for the next day or so. This is followed by a period of low symptom days for another 3-4 days. This cycle has been repeating for the last 6-8 weeks now. So, this is much better than before when I was in pain and in discomfort all the time.
So, I am not sure if I should still consider surgical options or wait out more to see if this symptom cycle gets better. I am worried about trading one set of symptoms for another set of symptoms by going in for the surgery.
