My brother is 23 years old and has severe cerebral palsy, for the last few years he has been complaining of stomach pains but was not able to explain what sort of pains as he also has limited speech and communication skills. about two years ago he became anaemic and was taken into hospital. While he was there he had an endoscopy and the test revealed that he had severe grade 3 erosive/ulcerative oesphagitis. To treat this he was given lansoprazole, two years later he still has not recovered and he is still suffering from the same symptoms. The doctors have said that nothing can be done about it and to carry on taking the medication given. After reading an article about endoscopic fundoplication I am wondering whether my brother would benefit from this. I am very concerned as my brother is in a lot of pain, which is also causing sleepless nights and now he seems to have developed laughter attacks which can go on for hours…doctors have not been able to diagnose this but the attack always occur when he is pain. I would be grateful if anyone could give any suggestions.
