After 14 years of taking PPI's, Zantacs, change of diet, you name it, I'm going to have the NF surgery on 1/17. UHC does not have a code for the Linx so that option is out for me. I canceled the NF surgery three times, but not this time. Please wish me well!

Thanks to all of you for all the comments, support and help.

Hopefully I'll talk to you all next weekend.

SG, best of luck. Did you look at the Esophyx TIF as well? It is a pain that the LINX isn't covered by all insurances.....

Thanks to all of you for the best wishes. I'm all prepared, but very nervous. Trying to have a positive attitude.
