Best of luck to you and I hope your tests give you the answers to what is causing your problems.

Hope they find the cause. Maybe too tight of a wrap. Best of luck

Hi,thankyou so much for the support! Im back home with all tests done but I have to wait a while until I get the results.Surgeon done my endoscopy and said everything looked ok,a floppy nissen still intact with no slippage or herniation.He said it can be hard to tell though if somethings not right.
Barium swallow was interesting,they spend ages with me turning me in all directions and theres definitely a problem though they would not discuss it with me,i heard one of the technicians saying "it looks as theres hold up above the wrap"?
Manometry was fun,the probe wouldn't go in properly,it kept turning on itself in my esophagus,after a few attempts it went in ok,again they wouldn't discuss results but said theres a problem with my swallow.
Hopefully they will be able to sort out whats wrong from these tests because I think ive had enough. I,ll keep you,s posted. Thanks! Barry
