So, I have read and re-read JPTs story regarding his LPR, breathing issues, and the Linx procedure he underwent. Is there anyone else on here who has breathing issues as a result of LPR and has had Linx or is considering having Linx for this issue?

From Dr Louie blog at Swedish Medical:

Brian E. Louie, MD

In general terms, control of reflux (bile or acid or both) and symptoms (heartburn vs breathing) with either a Nissen or LINX should work. However, not all breathing issues are related to GERD. about 1/3 of our patients have had some related breathing problem from GERD getting close or into the airway and those symptoms seem well controlled. Dr. Katz presented some work last year about patients with symptoms coming from the upper esophagus and airway and they seem to do well as well.
