I am dropping in to say hello and wish you well. You may have noticed I am no longer a moderator for GERD. Due to my health - Colon Cancer - I have found I do not have the energy I want to have so reorganizing some of my responsibility here in HealingWell was one way I chose to lighten my daily duties.
In no way am I trying to alarm you, however, I noticed after my colon resection that my GERD decreased a lot so perhaps the large tumor aggravated my GERD symptoms. Also my OR report identified a small hiatal hernia - nothing to see or care, hardly worth mentioning.
I do remain on Prilosec once daily as my Chemo meds can raise havoc with my digestive system.
I was dx on 8/10/2012 but kept most of my problems off the forum.
My email is open if anyone wants to talk and as a HW moderator, I am always here for you and every member of HW that may have a question or concern.
Be kind to my co-mods, Denise, Bill and Erica; between them they could write a book on GERD and surgical procedures.
