Well I for one and grateful for this informative thread Chad2322. I am a 60 year old gal in fairly decent shape that has opted to have the Linx done. Met with surgeon yesterday to fins out how all the other test results came out. i apparently have LA Grade C- D esopgitpus, a Hiatal Hernia, which I didn't think to ask how big...some precancerous cells that were ablated during endo., A short LES, whatever that means. He said I am a good candidate for Nissan or Linx. I chose Linx due to less evasiveness..etc. Oh and the manometry test ,what a treat that was....not.
Anyway, now I have to wait to get insurance taken care of and he feels I will have this done late November or early December.
Anyway, I can't take the PPI's or protonics, so I hope it goes well for me. He said this will prevent me from getting esophageal cancer. So thats a plus.
I have had nights this past year of waking up at night from a dead sleep with acid coming up forcefully and vomiting. Of course sleeping with head and chest elevated, no help. Not eating after 5pm, no help. I don't smoke and any alcohol s just not worth it. I really hope this surgery helps.
My question is, can I do protein drink, cottage cheese, yogurt for foods the first week after surgery. What are the best none surgery/fat foods I can have after surgery. I have some time to prepare but was curious. How long before I can do aerobics, plyo after this surgery? I just found this thread so now am going to go back and read it all. You may have already addressed this. Thanks!
