I'm so with everyone here! It's frustrating and confusing. I feel like if I went to 12 digestive specialists, and 12 surgeons, I'd get 24 different answers.
I almost quit this forum because I read so many conflicting things...but when it comes down to it this is the best place for the information I need right now, that I can find on the internet.
I've decided to listen to what feels right for my body, take the advice that feels right, and go with it.
That being said, someone mentioned a weakened LES as the cause for regurgitation. My LES is apparently fine (through tests anyway) and I still get regurgitation if I forget to take my meds...so now I'm confused on that.
Also YES you still have reflux weather you are on PPI's or not, Just had my second Manometry and that's what I was told. Reflux is reflux reguardless of any acid,
I'm scheduled for the results of that test, and it must not have been good because they are sending me for blood work right after for a Nissen that was tentatively set up before the manometry, depending on the results of the test.
If it realy is just the 'practice of medicine', they've gotten plenty of practice on me.They should be paying us for all this practice, not us paying them
