Hi folks,
Well, it's been awhile and I have been "joyfully" plugging along on my once daily dose of Dexilant @ 60Mg.
I recently had an EGD (upper endoscopy) and my MD went over the findings comapred to a year ago.
No h.pylori.
No fundic gland polyps in the stomach.
Mild esophagitis at the LES (GE) jjunction.
Normal Z-Line observed.
No hiatal hernia.
No dysplasia, namely BE.
OK, that's great (for me.) But my symptoms are annoying and really curtail my lifestyle.
I'm still a prime candidate for surgery, that hasn't changed. Yet, when I continue my research on the Linx, compared to a 360 degree Nissen (loose wrap), I am stunned to find a lack of new data as to it's efficacy and MD's performing it in NYC and surrounding areas.
Am I missing something here?
Like every other PPI I have taken, my luck will eventually run out.
GM :)
