Two days out from my original post and I think things have settled down. I was getting really nervous that for about 10 straight days small GERD symptoms were coming back, and that post was the accumulation of it. The last two days have not produced any new issues so I am hoping I just went through a burst of healing that was changing things up internally.
I still have the slightest heartburn but it isn't traveling up any further and I still don't feel the need for meds to control it, its more just the sensation and not the full blown pain, etc.
I decided to cut out coffee, my surgeon ok'd it after surgery, but I know all to well the issues coffee has on stomach acid, heartburn and regurgitation, so frankly its not worth having it anymore, I want to heal not have a buzz, but I sure will miss it.
Other than that I will provide an update after my appointment.
