I am wondering what tests have been done so far re your issues ? Most surgical candidates should have the following tests prior to surgery:
- EGD with biopsies
- Esophageal manometry
- 24 hour pH study off acid medications (7 days off PPIs; 48 hrs off H2 receptor blockers).
Some Patients may require:
- Barium esophagram
- Gastric emptying test
