Welcome to Healing Well! It sounds like you're in the right place! I had a Nissen fundoplication (it is a complicated spelling!) in February 2008 and have been very happy with the results. I can't help you with the Linx information, as I haven't really researched it. There are others here, who are very interested in it, and will probably be able to help.
You are so right that anxiety makes GERD much worse. I'm glad things worked out with your baby. Congratulations, by the way! The chances of you getting cancer from GERD is very low. Don't rule out the Nissen fundoplication. There are many here who've had it and had excellent results. In addition, keep in mind that many have the surgery and never post online. They just go about their lives and enjoy a better quality of life post-Nissen.
I hope you find your answers and get feeling better soon!
Hang in there!
