Has anyone with LPR had the Nissen, Linx, or TIF surgery and what were your results? I'm two years into severe LPR and have spent thousands of dollars and tried everything on the planet with no success! I'm strongly considering surgery but not sure if any will help!

Hi

I have had surgery 2.5 months ago for LPR. I decided to take the chance and go for surgery and hope I was in the percentage that it was successful for. Unfortunately it hasn't been a success for me and I'm back on H2 blockers, gaviscon, elevated bed etc and waiting for another PH probe test and barium swallow to confirm this. I was told by my surgeon to prepare for it not easing my symptoms. Got to be honest I'm gutted as I had pinned all my hopes on the op being the magic cure. Saying all that though, I would still advise you to go ahead with the op as there are a good percentage of people that do have success and easing of symptoms and you may be one of them. Got to be worth the chance. The only discomfort I found following the op was the gas pain which whilst uncomfortable was bearable and eased after a day or 2.

Hope you find a resolution soon.

Thanks for your response Trotters! Sorry to hear that your surgery has not helped you. That's exactly what I'm afraid of! Sounds though that you haven't had that tough a time with the after surgery where I have heard many people call it a complete nightmare. Can you tell me who did your surgery and where?
