After waiting 6 months for my surgeon to come back after his own medical leave, and over 30 years of suffering from a choking, chronic cough, I am finally scheduled for my surgery, next Friday Nov. 14th.
I have been monitoring this message board to help me prepare myself of what is to come. They have been very helpful. I am trying to focus on the success stories and thinking positive.
My biggest fear, is not if it will work and stop the reflux, as much as if my cough will stop. Like many of you, I was diagonosed with allergies, asthma, sinusitis etc. and even though all my tests have showed the reflux, I am nervous that these other things still might be some of the cause. Although the meds for all those things did not work. I also have been diagnosed with Vagus Nerve Damage and on meds for that, and still will have to take them.
Has anyone had similiar experience and the cough still didn't go away?
Thanks in advance for any responce.
