Welcome to Healing Well! I don't know a lot about
bile reflux, but there are a couple things I can say. First, obviously, anti-acid meds won't work, so that's a problem for you. There is one thing that can help make you more comfortable, and that's Carafate suspension. Has it been prescribed? It coats the tissue of your esophagus and stomach, and helps protect it.
There's also the Nissen fundoplication surgery, which helps keep the bile in your stomach, rather than migrating into your more sensitive esophagus. This is only an option if your LES is weak and your problem is the effects of the bile on your esophageal tissue.
Here's a link to a Mayo Clinic page on the topic:www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/bile-reflux/basics/definition/con-20025548
Hopefully somebody will be by soon to offer more help. It's a busy time of year, so don't get discouraged if you don't hear anything right away. Just keep posting to this thread, and and it will pop to the top of the list.Best wishes,
Nissen Fundoplication 2/09
