I have had to deal with Gerd for the past 2 yrs nothing I do really helps. I am maxed out on my medicine 40 mg Prilosec in the morninig and another 40 mg plus 300 mg of Zantac at night. I do not relish the idea of being on medicine for the rest of my life. I have been to a couple of doctors now one to up my medicine and he refereed me to a surgeon who has suggested that they run some tests and that there is a good chance that I may have surgery. The Upper GI study showed I had a lot of Reflux, the Gastrooscopy showed a hiatal hernia. I am waiting to get the pH study done.
What I would like to know is if anyone has had this done if so how did it go. Were there any complications if so what were they. Please anything you can tell me would be good.
