That seems kind of extreme to wait that long for meds to work. What about
the damage to the esophagus and lungs that it is doing. I have asthma because of mine. I have kind of ignored my symptoms since the operation until they interfered in my daily life. Not a good thing to do. It is better to keep after your doc until you find something that works for the time being. My meds have had to be switched alot. Right now I am on Nexium since last Friday and then Monday the doc added my carafate back in because I was having such troubles it was starting to affect my asthma again. Last night was better so think it is working. Alot of times my doc had to double my medicine to 2x a day even though according to their studies one is enough. Well that isn't true for every one because alot of times it has worked for me so ask your doc about
that too. Well I am off to try to get some sleep again. I am hoping for no heartburn tonight. Barb
