I have really bad reflux that currently isn't really being controlled by PPIs which is leading me to think I will need surgery. Well, have any of you had bad indigestion and burping for hours (sometimes 8 hrs or even 10-12 hrs later, next day you burp and can taste food from dinner the night before)? I have this really bad sometimes when I eat greasy or fatty foods, particularly a lot of food in the meal. It's especially gross to taste a food in a burp from the night before! I'm scared I have gastroparesis. I don't feel really full though after I eat a little and don't vomit. This also only seems to happen when I eat these types of bad foods, as I should with GERD, but sometimes I cheat a little and pay the price. The other night I endulged in a couple ice cream bars late at night and then I was still burping them when I woke up like 10 hours later. Is this normal with reflux?
The doctor didn't seem to think I needed a gastric emptying test done, but I forgot to mention the burping to the doctor. Any thoughts?
