Prior to my 24 hour Ph/Manometry testing off PPI's, I was only allowed Tums or Rolaids.
I needed to be off PPI's for two whole weeks. On the morning of the test, nothing but water.
I take other medicines and these were permitted, since they were not gastric related.
It's tough. I basically didn't speak, move around very much and/or bend over.
Gastric rebound lasted for about 5 days which made me miserable.
Had to watch my diet very carefully, as to not trigger more relfux.
The test is very important and you need to perform the above for real accuracy.
No question that it was rather hard, to say the least!
Hope this helps. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
