Thanks so very much for your follow-up post. I'm sure it will help many who come searching for answers. I'm glad to hear you made it through, and that you could use the tools you've worked hard to develop, to help you manage the challenges. It's not fun, but you made it!
I've had three of those fun tests, and can remember the sensation of the probe very well. It's definitely a "mind over matter" endeavor. I hope you get the results you're looking for, and can find relief from your GERD!
