17 months after LINX Surgery and 5 months after a Dilation Procedure, I'm still sufferingboth upper abdominal sensitivity, pressure, ache, and lower esophageal pressure and slight but frequent pain. Only answer is a restricted diet with no fat - I have esophageal acid pooling at the site of the LINX and have to reduce acid anything. Going to try another dilation in a few weeks. Then going to the get a 2nd opinion at a major center for LINX - NY or CA. Willing to travel for this - the sticks in Idaho don't have much in terms of Medical talent. i just don't trust the people (doctors) here. They say its IBS one month, esophagitis the next month, LINX too tight the following month, bottom line - I'm on a diet as strict as when I was on GERD. Truth is, at least with my GERD the diet worked - with this it's not working that well - keep having relapses every few weeks.
I'll keep in touch.
