I'm 20 years old.
I started college last year. The first weeks were stressful, I lost about 10 pounds and that's when I got GERD (I wonder if it started through stressful periods for most)

Anyway, seeing as this could last the rest of my life I thought I'd ask about the possibilities to "cure" my GERD instead of relieving the symptoms and losing money on meds forever.
I found out about fundoplication which I hear is not flawless

I'd love anymore information about it, thanks and I hope to be coming here often!

Hello Alejandro,
Welcome to the forum! I'm Vanessa, dx w/Gerd 5-6 yrs ago and meds seem to be the only thing that helps me.

Stress plays a role in GERD, so stress reduction & watching what you eat could possible relieve symptoms. I don't know much about Fundo precedure, but there are people here that will help answer your questions. Also, read thru some of the older post if you can.

Good Luck to you, and please stay in touch!

Vanessa

Hi and Welcome to HealingWell!
 
We have some good info right here on HW Links to the right of this page.  Check under the "GERD-Heartburn Resource Center, or the "Professional Resources".
 
Hope this helps - at age 20, I'm sure this isn't what you were expecting!?
 
Best Wishes, Teri tongue
