hey so i basically wanted to ask you guys with some knowledge about different treatment options. I am not responding to any f the ppis and diet doesn't seem to make a difference to my symptoms for example I can have a glass of water one day and it will set my reflux right off then on another day I could have a bottle of wine and my reflux wont even be set off. I have got the manometry test and 24 hr impedance on the 17th and am worried if i have a weak esophagus muscle I wont be eligible for the fundoplication. DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY OTHER PROCEDURES OR TREATMENTS i WOULD BE ABLE TO LOOK INTO ?

Hi sammywalker21,
Welcome to Healing Well!  Here's a great document containing information and a variety of treatment options. 
Good luck with your tests. Try not to "what if" yourself, since that will raise your anxiety level.  Take it one day at a time and wait to see what happens.
Best wishes!
