I know I'm only 6 days out, but in case it's not going to work for me, which I'm worried it won't, I'm wondering if anyone has had it adjusted. I can burp freely and I have a constant burning sensation at the junction which feels just like reflux. I feel it in there, but I'm wondering if it's too loose. I see that most people have a hard time burping at first, which I thought would be the case with me. Because I can burp so much and I feel some fluid come back up, I think it may not be tight enough. I'm just so worried! Is it normal to experience this burning heartburn like sensation in the throat??

Please tell me your thoughts. Thanks...

I'm sure the linx guru's will be along soon, I'm interested in the answer as well.

It is my understanding that the surgeon measures size three times. Also, the Linx supports the LES-- it doesn't close it. also since it is a foreign thing, your body builds a coating around it and this takes some time. While this build up happens you need to continue eating to keep it opening and closing. Need to give it some time and always call the doc and ask your questions regarding your concerns to give you peace of mind. Also I would still watch what you eat so healing can continue to take place. Your insides were moved around and can be irritated. Want the best for you.
