Sorry,but your wrong about
the surgery lasting life long..Umm they say it can last up to 10 years,but it skips,and alot of people have to have it redone etc.Ive tried digging up all the facts I can,and am going for testing for surgery options.Don't get me wrong the surgery can be great,and last a long time..
As far as your reflux problem,alot diffrent than mine,I have the classic symptoms they suck bad..
Drinking me I miss it,ive heard not to drink on the surgery,but than again it would be tempting.I guess I would ask the surgeon about that..I know of a great heartburn site that pretty much deals with people that have the nissen,and gerd..
I wish I could anwser your questions better,All I know is from what ive been told,and medical facts ive read about it lasting..Drinking really don't know..goggle heartburn-help forum like that great place for anwsers.Sorry I couldnt help and people dont respond here just view??
