I had the TIF procedure 6 1/2 weeks ago. I had suffered from GERD for over 30 years -I'm 65- and was taking 4 PPI'S and 2 H2 blockers daily for the last 5 years. Fractured my left knee a year ago and found out several months ago there is a high incidence of fractures in people on this therapy. Consequently, after considerable research, I decided on having the TFI procedure.
I have been following the diet as required, liquids/soft foods, and yesterday, along with several previous incidents, had 3 different attacks of reflux after introducing slightly more solid foods, per instructions. Also the amount of gas has been a constant irritant.
I should add that during the TIF procedure a hiatal hernia was discovered (3.2cm) and repaired.
Should I be experiencing reflux this far along post procedure? Appreciate any feedback.
