thanks for the encouragement Mr. mustard and I hope you do well too, what are your symptoms? I feel the 30 to 50% improvement was not worth going through the procedure, From the cost and the punitive side effects and because I still feel I have it . I do not take PPI's For my LPR conditions because it has zero effect. The only thing that helps is Gaviscon advance, liquid, from Europe not sold in the USA . which I still take . Also as you know from the news a month ago all PPIs have a 20% or greater increase in heart attack risk . which
is not true for H2 blockers such as Pepcid or Zantac . So I look forward to more remodeling from the procedure over the next three months to make another conclusion on whether was worth it or not . I did it because a friend had it done but his Gerd was much worse with regurgitation , heartburn and affected his life , however it took six months and he is completely free of symptoms for the last 10 years . And he is completely off 40 mg a day of PPI's.
did things get better at the 6 month mark?
