I am new to any forums,so apologise for rambling on
I had my Links op done last Tuesday and at the moment feeling very scared that it has not done what i hoped it would,been on PPI for 7 years, they seemed to help for quite a while until about year ago.
Anyway so glad my partner found your Forum,because It has helped me realise I am not alone, I went for the Links op because i read about it in national UK paper, and magazines and it was saying that people have the op then just a few days later their back at work,eating things they couldn't for years, well I don't feel any better infact worse than before the op, so i was pleased if thats the right word to find your forum showing that not everybody has the Operation and are fighting fit in a few days,weeks etc, even though I wish we were.
My main symptom is this terrible metal taste in mouth,and burning tongue which I haven't seen anyone else mention which is really worrying me, I had this before the op but thought it would have gone once op done,it seems to get worse once I start eating the taste makes me nauseas,and the burning on the tongue frightons me,throat sore but expected that,PND and lots of belching,will the burning ever go.
My surgeon said to come off the PPI's,but I feel I want to at least take some gaviscon too help. I am sorry for rambling on but i expected to feel so much better after all these years. Hope to hear from you.
