Sorry to say GERD seems to be a direct result of my gall bladder surgery too.
I had my gall bladder removed almost 12 months ago - an emergency as it had gone septic as well as being full of stones. I had been generally unwell for about a week but had no previous GB or GERD symptoms.
I spent a total of 15 days in hospital recovering from major srugery - key hole surgery wasnt possible and I havent been well since.
I have constant dull pain where my gall bladder was, a feeling like a pulled muscle in my abdomen when I move, bouts of diahorrea, heart burn, acid taste in my mouth, bad breath, a chronic cough & Asthma.
Chest Xray, CT scan, Bronchoscophy, lung function tests, blood tests allergy tests etc now show likely cause to be GERD which I certainly didnt have prior to surgery
Am now taking Omeprazole for GERD, Singulair, Symbicort, Mucodyne for Asthma as well as taking Pergolide & Azilect for Parkinson's Disease.
Ive just come out of hospital after a course of inhaled Zxylocain which did no good either & I m still wheezing & coughing til I vomit.
Still seeking a solution!!
