From what I've read LPR is called silent acid reflux, where you don't get the throat burning and the terrible heartburn.
If the barium swallow showed reflux then I'd assume the implant probably will as well, with my gerd if I reflux really bad it gets into my sinuses and makes them swell up which also makes the lump in my throat worse.
Try following some of the simple gerd things, like chewing your food really well, drink a small glass of water after meals instead of during to aid in pushing food through your digestive tract, not laying down, or bending over after eating, propping yourself up at night.
I'm pretty sure the remedies are about
the same for both LPR and GERD even though the symptoms aren't.
To help with your sinuses try a sinus rinse kit, you can get them from your local drug store or even wal-mart, I have a battery powered one my wife bought me from wal-mart for $20 but you can get the little bottle ones for around $10.
You could probably ask to try different reflux drugs since they're not all the same while you wait for the results.
Also an icepack on the throat sometimes helps 5min on 10min off is what I do when it's really bad.
