thanks for keeping track of my diary thing, i just do it to reduce the boredom of being at home!!
I was never really told how big it was, but i did the 24hr ph monitoring and had over 250 reflux episode in 13 hours!!! so thats pretty bad I guess.
Often Docs will try and turn you away from surgical treatments if they think medicine will fix it. I was on Tabs since I was 15, (zoton, I think it was) and after they discovered my hernia they moved me to Nexium but while nexium helped a little, it became less and less effective until I was at the point of think swallowing a tic tac would work better
But even before nexium stopped working altogether I started pressuring for the surgery because I believe that doctors think if they can fob you off easily then they dont think you really want or need surgery, its sort of like their insurance policy against doing unnecessary surgeries.
Anyway,I am, thankfully, after getting my Nissen and having gone an entire week without throwing up I am absolutely delighted
. I really couldn't be happier!!
